Cool Sand

Cool Sand

A Poem by MsJewel

~ a warm spring day at the beach ~

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.

what a serene tableau you've painted her, Julie! I could feel the warm sun and hear the waves as they come wooshing to the shore while the antennae of the crabs are waving from under the rocks.
gorgeous.

Thank you Woody! :) Julie
Your poetry resonates with me because I am an incurable romantic and because there is no place on earth I love more than the beach. In this piece, you have encapsulated both of my passions.

"May is hiding her flowery breeze..." True beach lovers know this....

I can smell the beach as I read this piece, especially from the "Coppertone scented afternoons"....

Lovely write. Excuse me now, I'm off to the beach!

You are very sweet. Thank you Lynn :) Julie
I took my kids to the beach last weekend, it was so nice to do that after a long cold winter.
It was a lake, not an ocean, and the water was freezing but it was so much fun.
I love that feeling you've captured here. :)

oh, i so loved the imagery in this piece... you capture a day at the beach so well... reading a book as young ones play... and those crabs, hiding in the sand to avoid being bucketed by curious sunny cheeked children... a keen observer you are, Julie... beautiful!!!

Always my pleasure, Julie!
It's a picture of the beach and the sea that I like. It's not really summer yet, but I'm longing for those warm days, we don't have a lot of them here in Belgium, so we have to cherish them. Well done, Julie. :) Rudi
