promises beauty

within the confines of brevity.

A season for the senses.

Seaside morning fog mists toward the sun.

Heated skin mellows.

Cool waves enliven.

Hermit crabs, minnows, periwinkles, jellyfish,

Seaweed, shells, sea glass, sand, blossoms,

Monarchs, hummingbirds, robins, seagulls,

Bees, ladybugs, crickets, and worms.

Swim, dance, jump, and spin.

Climb, run, ride, and hide.

Meals, music, and mayhem.

Peepers serenade moonrise.

Eyes reluctantly close upon another day.
