A Day At The Beach©

By Felina Silver Robinson

Green grass tickles my toes

as I lay upon my blanket

My eyes closed

Listening to the cries of the seagulls flying overhead

I feel the sun burn against my skin

I smell the salty beach ocean

and the giggles of the children as they play all about

I hear a slap against the volleyball and bodies fall against the hot sand

There is nothing more glorious than a day on the beach

I sit up and enjoy a few chapters of my favorite book

a warm breeze whips against my ears

I snack on the fruits in the picnic basket

My daughters scream as the cold water slaps against their legs

and pulls at their feet

the sun begins to set

rain starts to fall

The crowd quickly packs up

The smell of the rain heightens the smell of the ocean

as it sends us on our way ending

Just another warm summers day
