The Awesome/Impresionante Shore de Costa Rica


Playa Bonito, Jaco, Costa Rica
Costa Rica



The sun peaks perfectly through a gap in the mountain side,

illuminating the rising and falling tide that leaves a puff of mist on the shore,

just before it retreats back into the roaring sea.

A free and ritual rhyme that only nearly disrupts the play of the scurrying crabs,

yet completely satisfies the fabs of the daring surfers as they glide over and under,

jumping to escape the wonder of being thrown into shore. 



Un rayo de sol sale del medio de las montañas,

iluminando perfectamente la marea que sube y cae dejando una nube de aire salada,

antes que se retrasa al océano.

Un ritmo ritual que sólo casi interrupta los cangrejos jugando,

pero que beneficia a los surfistas valiante que montan la ola arriba y abajo,

escapando antes que la tira a la arena.


A spanglish poem by Yasmin Santos written on the shore of Jacó Beach
