With toes in the sand, head in the clouds
thoughts float by as I stand around
Waves come close to shake my hand
their gentle touch helps me understand

Beautiful words. Beautiful photograph. Lauren we live just a short drive from the ocean. It is lovely to refresh one’s spirit walking along the shore. Occasionally finding an exquisite shell or an interesting piece of drift wood. XX Virginia
Thanks so much, Virginia, and you’re lucky to live that close. We’re only about a 45 minute drive away, though, so it’s not too bad. There will always be something special about the ocean’s soothing symphony…xx

Language… has created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude’ to express the glory of being alone.
Love this quote, Geo, thanks for stopping by and sharing!
Ahhhh, the waves do that for me too. Lovely poem, Lauren! xxx
