Seaside

Salty waves creep toward the shore;
Their foamy fingers touch powdered-sugar sand.
Sea birds glide searching for more
Tidbits and offerings from a friendly hand.

Children scamper from the waters,
Amazed at the salty sweetness,
Showing glistening shells to waiting mothers,
Today happy, free, and careless.

Under the sun they bask and lay
On a soft dry towels within reach,
Treasuring just one more day
In paradise, this beach.
