Child-like Innocence This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Dancing towards the shore
Poking baby toes into foam
Shrieking in joy
Sand-piper feet
Flitting to and fro
On wings of baby’s salty breath
of mellow scent
Waves hurry in
for a cool embrace
laughing child
Child of innocence
Child of joy
Not afraid
of baby waves
holding tight
to little body
Eyes open wide
to different world
of salt and sunlight
and no air to breathe
At peace
at ease
in different world
Waves forcing little girl to air
Blinking in the golden
Breathing in
Salty peace
Drifting to shore
Covered in sand
in the bright light

This is really, really good! I love the description of the waves and I can just feel the texture of the sand and it is amazing! I kind of want to go to the beach now! ; )
