Martha's Vineyard

Vineyard and vine, encompassed by bluefish and brine.

A piscine emblem framed by the sea, ivy leagues wave at me. 

Crosstown traffic hums below, deaf to summer’s calypso.

In 1970, my family vacationed in beautiful Martha's Vineyard.  A few months ago,
my father gave me the original map we used to navigate the island. I used it as a
canvas to paint this ode to our fishing friends.
