Oh, Summer in The Sand

The stretched out beach is like wide open arms,

greeting us friendly and seducing us with its charms.

You hear the wind having conversations with the trees,

as we savour every breath, brought with a salty breeze.


I’m hypnotised with every pattern of each wave.

Reminding me of the beauty of freedom, that I crave.

With great power, each wave stampedes towards me

and then pulls back gently and slowly –  to let me be.


I enjoy the sunshine smiling down on the sand,

emphasising nature’s tiny crystals in my hand.

I see dogs defining happiness as they run and play,

for they live in the moment and take it day by day.


In this moment, I feel blessed and with peace of mind,

I know that all is in control and my future never blind.
