Water so cool, blue and green
Surreal, swirling so swift
Floating along an ocean dream
Three girls that live just for this

Adrift on the tide, out to sea
A strong set of waves roll in
Building, gaining velocity
Three girls shrieking in harmony

They turn to swim quickly away
But the currents are too strong
Glint of sun on waves at play
No choice but to ride along

They all catch the smallest one
Crashing over the curling crest
White water plunging three feet down
They tumble under and over

When they finally come up for air
Heads of long hair in tangles
They screech with glee, not a care
And head right back into danger

No matter that their swimsuits will slip
Tops sliding around to their backs
Sand in their hair, they casually flip
In case the boys are watching

Three sea nymphs playing at sea
Giggling, young and pretty
They have no responsibilities
This is what life is, they are hoping.

Race You To The Waves!

This poem reminds me of my youth....

A tropical secluded beach
So we all went undressin'
But all got stung by Man O'War
And learned a stinging lesson!

This was a fun poem!

Yep, this was me and my two sisters! (brother digging in the sand next to Mommy looking on!) So many wonderful days spent at the beach! Thanks for the memories, Corinne!
