Ocean Dreaming

Salt spray clears the mind
turquoise waves carrying
foamy white topping
moves swiftly toward the shore

Squeals of delight
children chasing the tide
as shells roll furious
beneath bare ticklish feet

The air soft and warm
envelopes glowing skin
brings a wealth of renewal
to young and old the same

Across the bay people work
all day never paying any heed
to the beauty of the sea
and all she has to say
