The colours of the rainbow paint my eyelids,
Blotting blue skies and drawing a perfect golden sun.
A skilled hand conjures sweeping strokes of shimmering light
And generous white sprinkles of glitter sand.
Several shades of blue splash on to paper
And ripple out into waves of a soothing sea.
Cawing white seagulls litter the sky and
A child's laugh can be heard in the distance.
The waves crash gently on to the carefully crafted shore.
The corners of my mouth stretch into a contented smile,
Everything is peaceful.
