Clear blue skies reflect ocean waves
that push and pull smiling bobble heads,
scattered in the mass of crystal.
Mothers nearby, splatter thick white paste
across sweaty, jumping, tiny bodies.
Every footstep sting and steam my salted feet.
Lying on a bed of cotton, I watch as the construction
of three story mansions are built with care. How I wish
to have ownership of such a place. My skin glistens like the
gold draped upon a pharaohs crown. Warm sun-filled kisses
dance across my tanned skin.
The sun begins its good-bye, the day slowly becomes cooler.
Salty waters begin to beat a powerful song.
Golden bodies move quickly waves of grey cover waves of blue.
Wrapping warm threads around my body, as I look yonder,
I wonder, where the crystals have gone. Where do the
shades of deep blue begin and dark grey end as they become lovers.
Powering against each other, making the other move harder, faster
as the sands end their playful date and watch the fight between sky and ocean.
