My Five Senses

Time by the ocean is a special luxury... rejuvenation of spirit, mental cleansing, physical relaxation and revitalization Scent of the ocean air... the first indication we are near and we savor its smell... actually find it stimulating Walking along the beach... waves roar in the distance... sand squishes between toes... cold water hits feet and legs... lowering the temperature of our very core Seagulls dip and squawk nearby... ships and ocean vessels sail along the never-ending horizon resembling children's toys Ocean water spray... a salty taste dinner is fish of the day for some... crablegs and lobster for others Time spent by the ocean... a sensory treat... smell, see, hear, feel, taste... a sensory luxury August 12, 2018 Five Senses Contest By Viv Wigley Fourth Place

You paint a picture that brings your thoughts alive, as one walks along the beach with you and feels what you feel with each step you take. Emile.

The most fascinating thing about the ocean is that women are content to sit and watch the waves roll in hour after hour as if they have a kindred bond with mermaids. From your poem, you must be one of them! Aloha! Rico
