Seaside Stroll

The sound of the sea at the shore,
is a constant whisper-roar. 
The sharp cry of  a sea- gull,
punctuates it for me.  
A breeze brings the scent of salt,
and brushes my skin, 
playing havoc with my hair.
I feel the softness of the sand,
the icy coolness of waves at my feet,
and the sandy grit between my toes.

I sense freedom all around me,
as I see, scantily clad people,
diving into waves, walking into the wind,
talking in groups, and bathing in warm sunlight.

Their voices are carried to me,
as a soft babble,
with laughter, and squeals of delight 
intermingled.
I see the beach,
strewn with scattered shells,
slick jellyfish, driftwood, 
seaweed and smooth sea-worn rocks.
I gather treasures that appeal to me.

I watch dogs frolic, running in circles, 
children building sandcastles.
I feel myself refreshed by the blue sky,
the aquamarine water,
and the sun-dazzled, whiteness of  sand.
  
I let my thoughts wander, as I
wonder, my senses sparkle, alive.

    Beautiful free verse. I felt the sea close to me - I even sensed the odor of Iodine and the freshness of the foam on the back of my hand. SuZ, thank you for it. G.
