Shade Tree

under a blistering
      tropical sun,

suffocating heat 
   drove us to
      find shade,

   we found a
beautiful tree,
      and shade.


      that day we 
found the beach
   with no name,

      where only
locals ever went.

   visitors could
   go elsewhere,
to famous places.

   we went native,
and benefitted

      from local 
      kindnesses
and friendship.
