The Beach - Poet's Rally #38


I love the sound of water
Lap lap lapping the shore
It's tiny white fingerlings
Tickling the wave before

I read the lovers messages
Scratched into the sand
So and So LOVES so and so
A woman and a man

As I walk, I feel the sand
Squishing between my toes
Nature's perfect pedicure
For all that ails the sole

I hear the children laughing
As they play upon the sand
Making fancy sandcastles
With their skillful little hands

The beach is a sacred place
Where familes come to play
The water lap lap lapping
All their troubles away.
