Early Morning at The Beach

early morning sun
sparkles crystal blue water-
like aqua blue glass

a flock of seagulls 
hover over crashing waves-
watching for sea fish

sandpipers on shore
searching for dead crab pieces-
while chirping their song

bright pink beach roses
waif in the salty sea air-
masking ripe wetlands

tide slowly building
as the ocean is waking-
waves crashing louder
