I strolled along the sandy path
Feeling welcomed by the scenery
The ocean was like a soothing bath
Its melody, a gorgeous delivery
The sand was warm against my feet
The silence, a desired retreat
The wind hugged gently as can be
The seagulls danced along the tide
Like children playing with innocent glee
Sharing their laughter with nothing to hide
I embraced, with zest, this heavenly day
While worries gratefully slipped away

Definitely! Thanks for stopping by, Richard! 🙂

I love this. I feel this way as I walk the beach near my own every day. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Madeline, and it’s wonderful that you can do this every day. The ocean is about 45 minutes away, so we have to plan our beach days. 🙂

Well living within 8 minutes drive of many tropical beaches where I live this one resonated with me. The sights and sounds of an ocean setting are really relaxing.
I’m glad this resonated with you, Ian, and being surrounded by many tropical beaches sounds like a dream come true. 🙂
You always have a wonderful way of expressing yourself through words…your smile always makes me smile Lauren! Blessings!
Beautiful visuals struck here Lauren. This visual and your words take me back to my days living by the sea. More recently I live by the lake and love my frequent walks along the shorts, inspired by the striking beauty, comforted by the tranquility and rejuvenated by the exertion and exhilaration.
Comforted too by the constant of lapping waves which carry silent messages for all tomorrows.
Another lovely one!
I love this lines, the ocean is soothing indeed.
Love and hugs from across the bleu pond xo
