The sun sets
over the luminous
breach of the ocean
breaking rays
through the smooth clouds
like soft pillows
under your head
cushioning your mind
and relaxing your soul
as you watch
the waves
roll up
to your toes
washing up
sea shells
rough, smooth
bumpy, or sharp
all glittering
with a soft sound
like bath water.
The foam
fizzes towards the shore
like bubbles
tickling your senses.
The damp sand
under your body
shines like gold
glitters
like fading fireworks.
Sea gulls soar overheard
from the tall cliffs behind you
like protective walls
being your bodyguard.
The night wind
blows softly
rustling your hair
feeling nice
against your
warm skin
bringing in
the smell of
the open sea.
Out to sea
a break in the water
appears
and a slick
dolphin flings
it's body into the air
sprinkling light
off of it's
unique body
barely making
but a small splash
as it re-enters
it's humble abode.
Gazing into the sky
you watch the stars
twinkling
like angels winking
to you from above.
You close your eyes
and let yourself fall
into that peaceful feeling.
