Palmy – Adjective

 “Glory, prosperous, or flourishing”


They’d swum;

Dived and splashed.

All of them,

A gaggle of youth.

They’d eaten


And drunk


They’d wrestled

On shoulders,

And explored

Underwater caves.

And then

they rested;

Sprawled out

On hanging rocks,

The palmy sun, sticky

Against their bare


She’d laid next to him,

Centimetres apart,

Her torso long

And appealing,

his long and


He watched her


Her lips curved

Just right,

As their friends

continued to play.

Bravely he closed

The space between


His arm

Brushing hers.

He waited for her

To flinch away.

But she stayed,

Pressed against

His side.
