Postcard from Tulum by Todd Wall


Calm blue waters.

Pink sand.

Palm trees wave in the sea breeze.

A burst of wind lifts the palm trees.

From their roots, they fly.

From their anchors in the sand.

A puff of wind

and they’re gone.

      Thank you. Years ago, I would have dreamed that I would be dabbling in poetry.

        💗 Different versions of ourselves in every new moment within the one moment we’re actually in. 💗

        LOL. That’s funny because during near every class I was in lifelong … I’d ignore the teachers and write poetry LOL. I don’t know if it was my incident some years back, lack of something that’s a muse to me or my head in other places … but I just can’t write the way I always had. I LOVE writing – but putting together stories and poems doesn’t come as easily to me as it always had. I’m going to go with my head in other places. 😉😜😁
