The bright sun on the white sand and rocks
Reflected a strong glare causing the eyes to water,
The blue sky empty of clouds opened up to infinity,
The cool breeze with the sweet smell of the salty water
Allowing calm to descend were just a moment ago was missing.
The sound of the waves pounding the beach,
So soothing its crashing upon the sand
Its rhythm allowing the mind to rest in peace deeper than sleep,
A refreshing break from simply existing apart,
Drawing into the oneness of nature and it endless cycle
Of repetition without boredom
The soft sound of birds calling,
Sea gulls with their dance above the waves,
White wings spread expansively
Gliding without effort over the waters,
Seeking the silver gleam below the surface
That gives strength for the dance to continue.
The levy with its large rocks,
Causing the waves to seek to dissolve,
Spaying those lucky enough to be there
With the cool mist from the sea,
Refreshing to the skin
Lessening the sting from the hot white sun.
A place were speech is unnecessary
All that is needed is a listening heart
With eyes that see,
Filled with wonder at the beauty of it all.
