Along the Seashore
I stroll along the road
eyes gaze across the sea
take in the scenic beauty
of the sea along the bay
The shifting sands meet my eyes
white flamingoes graze miles away
like white pebbles with orange skinny legs
dotting the great expanse of sand
The yellow rays of the sun
sparkle and dance on the blue sea
this makes noon time very special
I’m alone, but not lonely.
I breathe in deep breaths
the air so sweet, warm
serene sea, blissful solitude
in my memory forever
I wish I had someone with me
to share my deepest thoughts
of life being like the sea’s
ebb and flow – always on the move
