Shining like Brass

With salt in the air beyond sandy grass Ocean waves crash on the rocky shore Under golden sun, shining like brass Beyond the dunes I could want no more Where seagulls dive and the sailboats ride Ocean waves crash on the rocky shore Seashells float into the caves to hide Everything rolls in the changing tide Where seagulls dive and the sailboats ride The horizon like arms open wide There lies opportunities to see Everything rolls in the changing tide I am beginning to feel so free There is always new hope to be found There lies opportunities to see I laugh with seagulls swirling around With salt in the air beyond sandy grass There is always new hope to be found Under golden sun shining like brass Heidi Sands 8/10/20
