Summer's Day

Slow summer's day
rythmic ocean waves
soften beach shores
into tender clay as morningbyrds tour
crystal clear skies
over gentle lukewarm tides
somewhere miles from home

Crystal air and intide foam cools painful sand 
hot and smooth against my hands

Rising intides hiding sand castles and tidal litter
palmfuls of hot sand sparkle like glitter
burning my tender hands like sunburn blisters

Worn from the sand's rising heat
found cool shade beneath 
veradant leaves and dreamt until eve

Walking barefoot homeward bound
savored the ocean's last hushed sounds
lost in verdant camoflouge
thirsting fresh water , summer's mirage
passing orchard fields
tasting summer's yield
its litter...sweet , ripe and bitter
its temptation's like dodging sunlight
Amidst eve's paradise slept through night until first light
