The Beach

A Poem by Heromen Selena
"

A free verse poem that I did for my creative writing class

"

The Beach

 

Shaded by the skyscraper trees on the edge of the lake

I dip my big toe in the dark blue water

And flinch up the sandy beach

My toe melting in the sand’s warmth

From the brief brush of winter

When it’s the summer season

 

Hamburgers and hotdogs sizzle on the smoky grill

Calling my name with the aroma of lunch

The underside of my feet burn with each step on the sun baked sand

Racing to the wooden picnic tables covered in white cloth

To swipe a plastic plate before my family could take

Them all

 

Rich laughter between people, large and small

Juicy, plump hotdogs bursting in my mouth each bite

Light, joyful conversation jumping from one end to the other

And the sunlight streaming down through the canopy leaves

Warms my heart that I feel

At home here on the lake with

My family

Of course. You captured the memory wonderfully.
You did good and created a very feelgood feeling in me. I like the honesty, realism and normality in your words that give a feeling of association, I can relate to the scene you paint, with the strong imagery you have used.
