tree tunnel of light to Surama

off to Surama

in old pickup with a dozen others

and buckets and bags

watching savannah grow to rainforest

the temperature drop when we reach tall trees

the road to Surama a tree tunnel

golden sunset held so gently

                so briefly

                                so tenderly

in translucent green leaves

the tree-tunnel opens to mountain vistas

i can no longer resist the camera

                try

to capture a shot over the beaten tin pickup roof

 of sunset glow behind mountains

walk on PEI-red dirt to Emily’s

                brimming with her family

                                and mangoes

steady drone of generator competes with rasta

i spin green glow poi under full full moon.
