Cool Sand

Cool Sand

A Poem by MsJewel
"

~ a warm spring day at the beach ~

"

     

       Art ~ compliments of dailypainters.com

 

 

It’s spring

and yet

May is hiding her flowery breeze

 

as the golden rays of summer

                         weave a tapestry

of Coppertone scented afternoons

and sizzling sand…

 

only cooled

as the ocean dances to shore

beckoning to children

and Mother’s escaping the heat

  under straw hats

and a quick pick from Barnes and Noble’s best seller list

 

Even the sand crabs are hiding

heads covered in cool sand

                   waiting

for marshmallow tipped waves

foamy and white

to quickly whisk them away

                         before

sunny cheeks and curious hands

carrying bright yellow pails

disrupt the serenity

                                                of cool sand…

Ms Jewel,

I have seen this picture before and oh how I remember the scent of coppertone in the summertime, As I am from California as well. I was raised by the ocean and this piece brought me back to that time and place. Thank you for sharing this memory lane piece.

I like the vision of the sea and the child create confusion in the early morning sun. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry dear friend.

You are very sweet. Thanks so much :)
dear Julie... The perfect poem for Memorial Day...
I feel as though I am at the beach and have lived the
experience vicariously through your poem.
I could see the sand crabs hiding and feel my
ties in the sand... Did you coin the word
'Marshmallow' tipped waves?
Your art is charming, as are you. truly, Pat
