Countdown: Bahia Honeymooners by Laila E. - 2nd Place, Adult Category

In honor of our 23rd Annual Poetry Contest starting soon (April 1), we wanted to highlight the winners of our 22nd Annual Poetry Contest.  

Please enjoy this second-place poem from our Adult category from Laila.
She is in Bahia, he is too.
daughter of Sun, son of Moon
my dear honeymooners,
strolling the ex-since days - virgin
Cajaoro white astonishing beach,
shells in abundance scurrying about,
adorning their love story,
a mosaic calligraphic declaration.
The ukulele strings uttering
their overwhelming emotions
Bahia drums echoing ecstatically,
enough to blow out the candles
to set fire on veins.
She is posing as Marlin Monroe.
Her hands "Arco Iris"
in the truest oceanic wave,
reflecting the sky azure,
aquamarine and turquoise,
mixed shades of their eyes' delight
captured artistically by his camera.

-- Laila E.
