Written as a picture challenge for Nazire, I promised to write about Nazire’s booksie profile picture in return for a poem about happiness. Nazire’s poem was about life on an island as a little girl with a picture of her in a cute red dress. I included part of the poem and refer to that picture as well as the profile picture, thank you Nazire for providing the inspiration.

Beneath a Ninety's summer sun,

Hearing seagull's squawking cries,

An Island Girl in a cute red dress,

Is hiding mischief in her eyes.

Who could guess, or even know,

How transformed her life would be,

Leaving her loving Island home,

Journeying far, across the sea.

Residing now on distant shores,

A stranger, in a foreign land,

So content with welcoming friends,

Sharing times, ever~shifting~sand.

The girl soon became a woman,

Possessed of alluring, almond eyes,

Tumbling tresses of mahogany hair,

An island enigma, in disguise.

A portrait of, a cool-cover-girl,

Alluding to peaches and cream,

A subtle touch of nature's brush,

Delicacy of a poetic, dream.

Ah, but be she radiant woman,

Electric beauty, hard-wired to stun,

Or, Island Girl in a cute red dress,

Beneath a Ninety's summer sun.
