Footsteps

January 5, 2009
By Alli Ho, San Diego, CA

White foam lays
on cool blue water
Footsteps in the sand
disappear
Wave crash onto the shore
clouds threaten this perfect day

Childrens' laughter
fill the air

I take a step
sand between my toes
Fresh air
in my lungs
Waves come close to my feet
no close enough

I wade into
freezing water
I shiver
The sun beats against my shoulders
I take a deep breath
and dive
