I splash the salty water
with my tired hands
in the summer heat
it is consumed by the sands

I slightly feel a tickle
as fish swim by my feet
I watch a pool untouched
slowly form a sheet

Reflecting from afar
the sun fills up my eyes
causing every color
to appear in the skies

By chance I look away
towards the rocky shore below
and see the waves dancing
against their rocky foe

The craggy rocks withstand
all the sea can gave
giving me an insight
on how we all should live

 A real man
kisses his children goodnight

If we were rocks....but even they get worn down in time to the relentless pounding of the sea.....as do we. Again, excellent writing.

All troubles seem to melt away at the seashore don't they?  This was a beautiful reminder of how one feels there. Thanks  

 May the world hug you today,
With it's warmth and love.
I pray it whispers a joyful tune in your heart,
That tell you there is a friend sitting in another corner of the world,
Wishing you well and
wishing you love......
