School Holidays

Salty breeze
Teasing my hair as I run
Warm sand
Tickling my toes
Licks of smooth ice cream
Trickling off the cone
Potatoes roasting slowly
Among glowing coals.

Delicate shell colours
Brilliant sky colours
Intricate water patterns
Grooved in sand.
Raised round crab patterns
Scattered on top
Bits of driftwood

Seabirds calling
Seabirds crying
Splash waves
Crash waves
She-oaks singing
Wind songs
Moody beach
