Glimmering, shining
Rough, coarse, stinging
Sugary warm
Wet, dry
Muddy, pebbly, sinking

Smooth, gritty
White, black

Beautiful sand

Up ahead
The ocean
Rippling waves
A never-ending
Colorful curtain
Shimmering, twirling
In the wind
A whispering expanse
As if hushing a baby to sleep
Each coming wave
Gently caresses the rocks
On the shore
Then quickly rushes back

A seagull screams
Dives after a fish
Ripples circle
Creating tiny splashes
Tasting of salt and fish
Seaweed drags itself
After the seagull
Expelling its peppery scent

Swirling whirling
Dust devils evaporating
Into the skies
Wind dancing
Creating an ocean
Of its own

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Your words are so colorful! Your words paint pictures, and you were able to put what I was trying to put in a poem, but failed. This is an amazingly written poem, your creation. Thanks for sharing this!
