“galveston island nights” – original poetry
my choice for the best time to be on galveston island
always a sense of rawness and adventure in the ever moving night air from the gulf
though there’s lots of clubs and bars for such a little place, galveston’s real richness at night, is a walk out onto a rock groin to stand beside the waves while looking out to sea and up at stars forgotten in electric lights
or riding west along the narrowing sandbar of an island toward san luis pass
maybe even driving to the eastern end of the seawall to the opening to the houston ship channel, and feeling the opening also pivot to the deeper gulf of mexico
night-time in galveston is like yoga’s loophole, where consciousness plays the edges, seen and unseen, but always sensed
Galveston Island Nights
Stretches of man-dropped rock groins
sleep into the dark
while waves foam warmly
between your toes.
It’s night time
in old Galvez Towne.
are a moon-smile away.
Strollers peek and poke in shops
stocked with surprises.
The night exposes Galveston’s
swept by air so soft
waves so light
the heat of day cools
in dreams of shimmered shivers.
