Sunrise On The Beach

Shades of pink paint the sky
gentle waves kiss my feet
return again to the sea
seagulls cry

Sun rises to bring the day
the dampness of the night
fading away
a new day

On the horizon specks of white
sailboats passing by
dolphins run alongside
unafraid

footprints in the sand
I am not alone 
a kindred spirit
passed this way

seashells appear
driftwood too
remnants of the sea
treasures for me.

Pale red now the sky
the sun
peeks through the trees
bringing to life the beach

seabirds scurry around
there next meal to find
between each wave 
is where their bounty lies

little diamonds dancing
sunlight on the sea
the beauty of it all
here for you and me.
