- A Day At The Beach -


From atop this prairie dune of hard caked sand; 
Ancient layers jutting up from a green sea.
The ocean comes to me.

Gusts of wind that cut the skin;
Bringing chill that steals warmth from the sun.
The ocean comes to me.

Violent grasses strike together;
Pine needles shiver in the breeze.
The ocean comes to me.

Landlocked by fields of corn;
Wheat stalks sway like thrashing waves.
The ocean comes to me.

Smoke from fires wild and untamed;
Fills my lungs with memories.
The ocean comes to me.

Salt from dried plains flies in the air;
Flooding the taste of my lips.
The ocean comes to me.

A piece of me lost on summer days;
Has found its way home.
The ocean comes to me.
