“galveston” – original poetry


galveston is an island city of opposites, duality if that’s your definitional preference 😉

either way, it’s a lot of both the very good, and the very bad

dangerous storms, grime, extreme humidity and heat

but people are an optimistic breed, preferring –

softened fog, cooling breezes, and…

nature’s timelessness…

it’s a sort of natural yoga one can absorb 😉



Sea waves crashing when

the hurricane’s winds won’t

stop.  Sea crabs biting in water 

stiller than glass.  Summer from 

early May to late September.  The 

rest of the time only kinda hot.

Victorian houses painted

to look like grown-up 

toys.  Victorian 

homes creaking and tilting

the old fashioned way.  Old

warehouses made into malls.  A 

fog so thin so pure in timelessness

it softens the grime on everything.  

Even gives the street lamps a halo.

Then.  In the still night.  That

surprise ocean breeze.  Keeping

everyone in sleepy old Galveston

smiling and dreaming.
