beach music

call of seagulls in the early morning

croak of frogs in the pond at night

 

never-ending surf,  pounding or lapping, meeting the shore

breeze whipping through hair, swirling around ears, refreshing hot skin

 

pour and drip of a rainshower as it rises and falls

beating of sunrays – til a cloud drifts by

 

steam from the ground and the burn from the sand

coolness of water in the tide or the pool

 

redness of skin and the lightening of hair

rainbow colors of suits and floats, towels and boats

 

aroma of seafood, and fries, and fruit

tastes of sweetness, and salt, and sauce

 

rolling and thumping of coolers across the boardwalk to the beach

slapping of balls and Frisbees as they hit – hands, or water, or sand

 

snapping of beach chairs setting up or folding down

flapping of umbrellas and towels in the wind

 

words and images from books engulfing your thinking

strains of music keeping time in the background of your life

 

laughter and whispers of friends and families, sharing time together

memories to last til this time next year
