She’s at the beach
near the water’s edge.
Above her the sky
was a cloudless dark blue.
In front of her sat the ocean,
the golden sun just barely on the horizon.
The smell of the salty water surrounded her senses,
calming her mind as it mixed with the smell of sand.
she gently placed her hand on the warm sand,
slowly burying her fingers into it.
she relished in the calming sounds
as she watched the rolling waves.
The further she dug her hand,
the colder the sand became.
