It was that
summer of endless sand we shared.
The sun warm
on bare skin, white grit between our toes.
gulls dance on those gentle breezes.
and the scent of salt air tickling my nose.
shovels busy sculpting and shaping
and fairy castles where knights still reign.
playing immersed in paradise
we tore down
our structures and built them again.
Beneath a sky
draped with snowflake clouds
attacked with rage and then retreated.
We waged wars
with those imaginary armies.
Neither of us
winning nor were we ever defeated.
hearing, singing a song the ocean sang,
We ran hand in
hand across that warm endless dune.
realizing what turns life might foist upon us.
We danced in
sweet innocence and joy to life's tune.
