Carefree Zone

Take it easy Soak up the sun Windblown hair Convertible fun Fried seafood Ice cream cone Sand and sea Carefree zone Take a dip Take a nap Read a book Eat a snack Look ahead Never back Amber sunset Starry sky Sweet dreams No goodbyes There’s a sunrise On the horizon

Fish Fry

I explored the ocean In an unlikely boat Red-checkered, tissue-lined A cardboard vessel of the sea Where fish was battered Dipped once, fried twice In oil that splattered On the fish fry presented to me Perfectly golden Fish and sun On that day Were my gifts from the sea

Flip-flop, Flip-flop

  Flip-flop, Flip-flop Here come the summer feet On the sandy beaches Or walking down the street They’re versatile, they’re casual They’re cool for sweaty feet They’re easily slipped on or off In the summer heat Flip-flop, Flip-flop Here come the summer feet If you choose to wear them You’ll never be discreet

A Frothy Kiss

Waves crash With a frothy kiss Upon sandy lips Strewn with rocky regrets; Of kisses past That didn’t last The landscape changed Never again the same; Redefined… Into a shoreline Affected… But not broken; Encouraged by the promise Of a frothy kiss that’s honest As it cleanses and washes over Until all before is forgotten
