Brazilian Lilt

written by: Barbara Deraoui

@brmaxwell

 

Brazilian music plays in the background

Barely heard

The rhythm of the beat pounding

Samba

Bringing smiles to faces

 

Palm trees blowing in the wind

White sandy beaches

Smooth as silk to the touch

Bright colored umbrellas

Children playing by the water

Ice cream vendors selling their wares

Kites flying high in the air

Some resembling birds

 

Corcovado in the background

Watching everything

Sugar Loaf mountain

 

Beautiful tiled sidewalks

Make a mosaic

Glorious blue skies

Dotted with clouds

Soft Brazilian music plays

Barely heard

Samba

Bringing smiles to all

 

It’s a Brazilian lilt
