You can go there from here

Everywhere you go will be somewhere

you’ve never been before. Try this:

 

from Sabana Grande head north on route 120, one-

by-one the mile markers enriching

 

every minute of your life. Follow this

absorbing the natural beauty all around—stop

 

see the coast from above, Guánica Bay where

the aqua-blue water shimmers under

 

celestial-blue skies. Look beyond the

Caribbean sea’s many miles of sand

 

butter-gold beaches near the mangrove swamp—buried

roots grab the waterlogged mud. Don’t bypass

 

Charco Pilón—lagoon-blue natural pool,

filled by silvering cascading waters. On the rock

 

the cavernous chamber filled with crystalline streams,

where you can swim or be mesmerized

 

by the spraying water making a magical plinking sound.

And still, the enchanting findings abound.

    I'm sitting here in the Northern Cold, and suddenly along comes your poem and takes to the beauty and the warmth of your tropical isle. "Everywhere you go, will be somewhere, " caught my attention immediately. I then started on that journey and stopped to see the "aqua-blue water", the butter-gold beaches, the blue lagoon and cascading waters, and by then I was mesmerized. MY mind and I thank you for bringing us this quiet respite on a cold day. I'm saving this for future use> - Phil A.
