Sarasota, Florida Poetry

Updated on September 25, 2014

Impressions of Sarasota in Poetry

We recently spent a month on vacation in the Sarasota, Florida area. Here are some of my impressions of Sarasota, Florida, which include my original poetry about the beaches, the people, the shopping, and the Gulf of Mexico

I'd Like to Live in Sarasota

I'd like to live in Sarasota

On a canal or on the Intercoastal with a boat-a

The house need not be very large

But it should have 2 beds, 2 baths and a garage

Surrounded by tall, dense, lush vegetation

Palm trees, mangoes, citrus propagations

A porch in front with a lazy 2-seater swing

A sailboat docked in back for navigating

If it were on Lido or Siesta Key

Then walkable to the beach is a necessity

And likewise to St. Armands or the Village

So restaurants and shoppes we could daily pillage

Haven't seen a storm here or a hurricane

Looks like the city has held up well all the same

Nice to see the vibrancy downtown and by the shores

And within mere miles all the major department stores

There are a plethora of cultural festivities

Along with water sporting and natural activities

Yes, I'd like to someday live in Sarasota

Part-time, at least, or maybe on that boat-a

Muted Sun

Muted sun peaks through bolts of white chiffon

Reaffirming what a blessed planet we are on

Amid the coastal syncopated roar

That laps with a million frothy tongues upon the shore

A lone pelican angles toward the surf

It has spied dinner 'neath the watery turf

As blustery winds blow not the blades of green

Nor many grains of sand upon the planar scene
