Sitting warm on a distant shore,
sun warming the skin.
Birds flutter through the sky,
hearing their songs echo in my head.
Ocean waves splash and crash around our feet,
fine sand tickles and prickles our toes as we pass.
Taste of salt heavy on our lips and face.
Memories rushing back,
taking me to time spent long ago on this very shore.
Hair shimmers under the warm light,
reflecting heat rising up off the hot earth.
We stay in the waves, taking it all in.
Daylight will soon end, making us move along.
Waves knock us around, sand in our hair,
memories rushing to mind, smiles spreading across our faces.
Left with love in our hearts and peace in our minds,
the ocean has the power to heal and remedy the soul.
