Based on a recent comment I made on the web site of a friend, I wrote this short story this morning. Entitled, She’s A Dream, I hope that you’ll enjoy reading it.
I rested on a tropical sandy cay, comfortable in a low seat with my bare feet in warm, shallow water. Small waves carried the tranquil and continuous rhythm of ocean currents on shore, breaking into sand and drowning in retreat.
With a cooling but mild summer breeze rustling palm fronds through the trees on shore behind me, I dreamed I heard a British woman from the past – Clementine – sounding a conch shell from a hillside in the distance.
I was at peace as the sun grew old, slowly dropping from the sky, setting colors of gold, orange and peach in brilliant illumination across scattered clouds on the horizon. Then, on the edge of time, sunlight refracted through a level plane in the ocean, casting a bright, blinding green flash!
Moments passed into minutes, until my sight returned. And, then I saw her – the silhouette of a beautiful woman slowly walking along the shoreline in my direction. Long, flowing hair wafting on thermals, hips swaying slightly with each casual step, I could tell that she wasn’t very tall, and watched closely as she approached.
She was barefoot with a lovely figure, suntanned, wearing a bikini top and fishnet skirt, and also wore a small diamond piercing on her nose. Immediately, I was drawn to the most beautiful pair of brown eyes I’d ever seen…she was a goddess!
I was captured by a vision of her beauty, when suddenly she spoke –
Hello my dear friend, Phil. How are you today?
What?! I’d never seen this woman before – though very much wish that I had. Who was she? I was on a remote tropical island in the Caribbean… At that moment, a small coconut detached from a palm tree, dropping on my head and knocking me to the ground.
When later I regained my senses, I was alone and realized that she was only a dream.

If you enjoy the water and would like to rent a boat for the day, may I suggest, at a minimum, wearing a life-preserver and searching for a more trustworthy watercraft. In the meantime, you can visit my gallery to check out some prints. Bon voyage!
This collage is focused on coral with a tropical sun warming a sandy beach, as waves from a vibrant ocean splash across the shoreline. The macro photograph of the coral was taken on a wooden floor – it looks much better, now! Stop by my galleries for more – Fine Art America, Redbubble, Society 6 and Zazzle.
