A Poetic Expression of My First Impressions of Dominica

316 (2)Love Affair

 

Beautiful Dominica,

Will you really be mine?

 

How you move meDSCF5145

As I search for answers

 That are buried deep in my heart.

 

We belong together –

You calm my troubled mind

And sooth my weary soul.

Your majestic mountains and rushing rivers

DSCF4090Provide quiet comfort and consolation.DSCF0543

 

But you also captivate me.

How sensational each moment seems

When I am enveloped in your earthly charms.

 

Why do you cast this spell on me?

Perhaps I will never know.

Instead, I will revel in your healing touch

And reciprocate with gratitude and love.
