The Beach

Clouds mimic the inside of a sweet Clementine;
the fading sun burns steady in the west,
sharing its last glow before dropping into the sea.
Late spring air is thick with salt and anticipation,
awaiting summer with bated breath.
Fireflies prepare their lights,
ready to dance in the darkness of June,
ready to flit between giggling children,
ready to set the nights on fire.
