Look at the glistening waves,

gliding in and out

to a rhythm all their own

as they gently kiss the sandy shore.


Look to the beautiful horizon,

where brightly colored sails, moving swiftly,

dart to and fro

across the royal blue sky.


Look at the footprints in the sand,

telling their story to those who choose to follow

as they weave in and out

before melting back into the wet sand.


Look to the glowing red sky as its light, the sun,

begins to slowly sink down over the sea.

Slowly dimming, darkening the sky

before finding its final resting place beyond the horizon.
