A Summer’s Day (Written June 7)

A Summer’s Day


I look at the sun with open eyes

As it sinks low in the sky.

I listen to the sound of the children


As they play on the beach behind me.

I wave to the people on their boats

As they come in from the bay.


I feel the warmth of the sand

As it works its way up from my toes.

I let the words of the poem take shape


As I drift further and further away.

I let the rhythm of the waves

Give my words their lilt and sway.


I breathe in the salt air and breathe out

The stillness and perfection

Of a summer’s day in June,┬áby the sea.
