Summer Solitude ~

Wind in hair
Riding in our boat
Following the channel
To a quiet beach

Anchor set
Wading through
Emerald green waters
Warm as a winter’s bath

Beach to ourselves
Walking hand in hand
Creating solitary footprints
In the wet sand

Surf lapping at the edge
Shells rolling back and forth
Glimmering in the sunlight
Teasing us into a game of
“Catch me if you can”

Bending and scooping
Retrieving gifts from the sea

While overhead
Puffy clouds adorn the blue skies
Terns gracefully, silently soar


Summer Solitude~
