You know you’ve arrived

from the salty smell in the air

to the wind


 through your hair.


The sound of the waves

crashing on the beach.

As the tide rolls in

the tide rolls out.


Kids laughing

pales and shovels in hand

while digging and building

playing in the sand.


A couple embracing

strolling the beach

showing their love

a kiss on the cheek.



blowing their whistles

waving you in.

Fog horn sounds

from the boats pulling in.

The smell of coconut

all over your skin.


A great book on hand

  best friend by your side.

This is why I

love to play

in the sand.

    I have and I have been responding back. I don’t know what’s going on with Word press?? Having difficulties editing my posts. Haven’t been able to space my poetry properly because it wont save the way I type it out. I’ve been approving my fellow bloggers comments and they just disappear! It’s been driving me crazy all week long!!! Please know I have been receiving them and I have been responding! I appreciate all your kind words my friend and for taking the time to do so.

      Summers almost over so I’m getting in as much beach time as I can. Heading to Cape Cod on Tuesday, with my mentor (I call him my Guru) and my very best friend, Kimba… Cannot wait!! Love the beaches on the Cape as well as Rhode Island. It’s my peaceful place!

        Kimba, I made that reply last week. Not sure what is going on with word press. Having lots of problems the last two weeks. 😦

        I have the same problem – I haven’t been receiving any comments on WP – I hope everyone can listen to my message and begin to like my post, it means a lot to me!
