Laughter, Footsteps, and a Drop of Salt Water

June 2, 2010

A street leading up to the beach,
The never ending sea breeze.
That random bench outside the board shop,
Ice cream dripping down fingers.
Laughter filling the blue sky.

A million stars dotting the sky,
Waves silently hugging the shore.
Footprints imprint on wet sand,
A full moon overlooking the waves.

A grey clouded sky,
Angry waves crashing onto the shore.
A drop of salt water hitting the ground….
An empty beach
