Colleen Goes to the Sea

Her vacation day 
It is here at last
Colleens bags are packed
I hope she has a blast

Off to the coast
For some ocean air
Sparkling waters
Wind blowing her hair

Walk along the beach
Searching for some shells
Sand between her toes
Feeling like Tinkerbell

All of her troubles
Washed out to Sea
Like a Sea Gull
She feels really free

With the sound of waves
Crashing on the shore
Life is much better
Than ever before

The sun on her face
The warm ocean breeze
A moment so perfect
She feels so at ease 

She wraps this picture
To hold in her mind
For easy access
When life isn't kind

She'll later unpack
To relive again
Her piece of heaven
To erase life's pain

Dedicated to Colleen

I hope you find a Unicorn to ride or a horse that is realated to one.

    I still love to be beside the seaside! This is the season to jet into Mombasa and suntan your cold away!

    Forget the horse. It is 50 dollars an hour and you have to go in groups. I have the worst head and chest cold. Love Colleen

    Thank you so much. I am going to take a notebook to the beach and sea what happens. My sister is a bartender so I am pretty happy by evening. Last night little to much. Today, I dont think I need to. Last 2 nights were interesting. They wont let me go for a swim. But I am faster then they are.LOL Love Colleen

    Richard, there are many here that feign friendship---you are not one who floats with the tide of consensus nor the popular friend of the day but---a true friend. This is a perfect dedication to a great deserving gal and I hope you don't mind if I pile on to wish Colleen a Bon Voyage!

    Richard, this is really wonderful, I so enjoyed reading it and wishing it was I on that shore with the sand, and the wind, and the sun, constance
