ON MY PORCH
A breeze whispers through the leaves,
caresses my cheek.
A love song to me
tumble playfully onto the smooth sand
A soft melodic swoosh, swoosh, swoosh.
Rainbow of umbrellas ripple in the breeze
Rainbow of people on the beach, in the water
On their boats and watercraft
Tossing balls, bouncing on their floaters
Reading, people-watching, building sand castles,
The soft wind
draws hatched patterns across the surface of the water
Sea gulls dip, swoop.
Greg out deep, head disappears then bobs up
Me, water to my shoulders, taking in
endless simple pleasures.
