Millpond fluff froth rolling gently
on the shore adorned with shells
and pebbles worn smooth in water’s
age long embrace of stone and rock.
Balmy breeze ruffle resting feathers
of birds bathing in the sun’s rays
alongside bodies of all types and ages
seeking rest or fun or golden tans.
Footprints left in wave wet sand
cast clues of moistened soles
wandering along sand laden beaches
going nowhere fast in careless ease.
A spirit calmed by the shush, shush
of the sea’s kiss brushing land
Time to reminisce, to think, to dream
in a transient bubble of tranquillity.
