The Bahamas

Two years old
Walking
On the sand

The crystal clear
Ocean of the Bahamas
Covering my feet

My grandmother
Holding my hand

Finding
Sea creatures
Star fish
And Conch shells

Playing in
The shallow bay
In front of our
House

The beach house
My grandparents
Rented

For my family
And my uncle
To stay in
With them

It was beautiful
The one story
House
Was all white on the
Outside

With a porch
That had a dock
Off it




A hammock
By the ocean
With palm trees
All around it

A funny little dog
That came with
The house

We loved
To play with
And sleep by

A boat comes in
Full of food
That will go
To the small
Store

Grammie and I
Would
Go down
To see if any
Ice cream came in

Sometimes
It did
Grammie
Would get us
Lots
When it came

I remember
One day
When I was sad

I can’t believe
I was sad
In the Bahamas





But
It was
Because
I was too small

To ride
The water slide

But that
Didn’t matter
I just
Swam



In the
Crystal clear
Ocean
With
My grandparents

I just wanted to remember the vacation that I had when I was little, and how close I have always been to my grandmother.

Thanks for commenting I commented on yours too. My favorite part about this poem is the memory to me, so I'm glad it gives you a good image

I love the description! The repetition really captures the mood and the I can really see the sand and "crystal clear ocean". (P.S. It's me, your twin.)
