Lakeside view, pelicans glide along the stillness of the water. Damp sea grass taints the delicate breeze. Little dog taps along, sniffing and snuffing questionable things. Clouds flow above, breaking every now and then to let the sun sneak through. Jet skis buzz whilst the boats do hum. Rolling hills ever varying shades of green. Sea birds squawk and squirm in-between their daily hunt. Lakeside view. Always a tantalising scene you be.
salt & sand
Salt tangled hair-
damp bathers cling against skin.
The seat-belts metal tongue leaves a scalding imprint.
Grains of sand dabble throughout the car.
Bare feet scatter across sun drenched asphalt.
Fish and chips linger within the ocean breeze.
Seagulls beg and pine for a chip or two.
Ice-cream seeps along sunburnt arms.
Sun shies away upon the horizon.
Such a day comes to an end-
as the waves calm towards the night.
Long drive, winding roads.
Motionless trees, always moving.
Travelling. Such peace.
Each step I take-
Sand caresses my feet-
Imprinting Mother Earth ever so briefly-
Whilst the tide gallops in.
The ocean breeze.
But never seen-
Entwines secrets into my tousled hair.
Salt and sand tango upon my my lips-
A comforting kiss.
From Mother Nature-
It shall be.
