Analysis of My Island Home

In fresh mornings I greet you. My island home.

Surrounded by a shawl of turquoise.

Crowned by the most majestic of mountains.

Your waves caress my feet like the touch of an old friend.

Your balmy breeze fills my senses.

Olive trees in the evening, with a jasmine kiss...

The smell of home.
