Of all the places I love to visit,
The beach is my most adored place of peace.
Tide goes in and out, a rhythm ceaseless,
Hands, toes buried in sand, sitting in it.
Gorgeous place, with blue skys and sun gifted.
I watch the children build their castles pleased,
Towers, moats built –they knock it all down ungrieved.
Reading novel, sunlight my spirits lifts.
Can anything beat wading, two-miles or so,
The water just rising around calves low;
Sunscreen reapplied, temperature hot, glow —
Of the light on water beaded skin, gleaming.
Tranquility found in sand, surf, sun dreams;
Natures temple, relax, unwind; heart beams.
