palms

a line of palm trees painted in watercolor against a multicolor sky

You turn towards the sun
during your afternoon nap.

Hours away, some happy coral island
is just waking in the arms
of a sleepy blue sea.

The sky is licking rosy stamps
to send the first letter
of the day on its way.

You turn in your sleep.
There’s a hint of coconut
in my empty palm.
