Beach magic

Flowing, ebbing, in constant grace

The water’s edge a meandering trace

Of porous sand and fine-grained silt

In time immemorial sounds that lilt

A scene that plays out everyday

In unmarked, uncaring rhythm at play

A mixture of damp fur and windswept land

Gambolling in sloppy, aimless strides

Paws in and out of the purposeful tide

A playful breeze, unceasing heat

Brushing against the burning feet

 

Sun kissed tendrils of golden silk

Lie upon cheeks of creamy milk

The child amidst his sandy carpet

imagesPSW77T2ICreates a lopsided castle turret

Happily coated in sunscreen and sand

Oblivious of time or hunger pangs

 

The call of the surf, sand and sea

Appeals to all with utmost glee

The child in all of us you see

Emerges in renewing energy

To run, dance, and happily play

From cool, clear dawn of new born day

 

Those hours of carefree abandon and bliss

In magical fantasy of daydream’s kiss

And memories that will live on forever

In hearts and minds and soulful endeavour

Much like the endless ocean and earth

Natures’ wonders live on in rebirth.

If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in. ~ Rachel Carson
