The beach is naturally

full of beauty.

A spray of salty tears

from the stormy seas

lands on my prickly skin,

itchy with red rashes,

a gift from the sand.

Seaweed wraps around me,

floating strands of green

tugging me to the waves.

Suddenly I see him.

His eyes

endless pools of blue,

stare deep into my soul

as he lifts me up

and I see the light dancing

on the surface of the water.

I find myself once more on the beach

dusted with burning cinnamon sand

and he is nowhere to be seen.
