EXAMPLE: Caribbean Nights

The soft flickering flame entreats.
Candle burns slow - its fragrance sweet.
Bare Terra cotta walls close in,
stifling in the late evening...
A careless moth tempts fate- dancing-
The scotch and I...alone again.
Soft Caribbean nights call me.
Dark, unknown waves roll from the sea-
The moth's last flight- hovers and spins...

--by Scott J. Alcorn
