“Our friends and guests are not only nature-lovers and divers but also poets. Check out this collection of poems about love, friendship, sisterhood, foreign cities, nature and the ocean. We love the Tropical Storm.”

“I read the poems yesterday and was very touched by them. They carried me back to my youth, awakened longings for travel, love and the tropics. My compliments to Miriam for so much insight and emotional depth at a young age.
