April on the Turquoise Coast
“On the coast we have to expect surprises,”
Erdal said. He meant it as a warning.
I hoped it was a promise.
And he was right:
Sunny days turned to gray
Warm breezes to chill wind;
One night dancing and laughing on deck
The next awakened by crashing thunder,
Flashing lightning, feet running on deck,
Gullet pitching and rolling amid waves.
At morning light, a safe, calm harbor,
A town not on our itinerary. Free time
For steamy hamam, soap bubbles, massage.
Next day, sparkling seas, water true turquoise. Yes!
And every other shade of blue,
Where Antony and Cleopatra honeymooned.
April, a fine time on the Turquoise Coast.
