Summer days melt together down by the ocean’s reach.
A salty kiss of water refreshes my skin and awakes my nose...
it's an appreciative welcome.
To a girl living in an landlocked state,
relishing every minuscule detail the shore has to bring...
The food is a savory touch - everything seems to taste better with a salty breeze.
Barbecues light up the block in beach homes.
Cameras flash saving up new memories.
Old photos get passed around by family.
Simpler times by the shore, with aged smiles
inhaling in the fresh salty air, embracing the sand in my toes.
I watch the pink sky melt into dusk,
Breathtaking sunset emerges, as the waves slowly lap on the sand.
Smiling faintly in the dusky light of fireflies,I wave a lofty goodbye to dark Jersey skies.
