"Nothing gold can stay" -Robert Frost


the warm summer air
seeping into my skin
the golden sand squeezing itself
between my toes
the noisiness and laughter,
ringing in my ears
so many things can be seen
on a beach
parents tanning
while their children rush
to create the biggest sandcastle,
teenagers listening to music
under the heat of the sun,
old couples walking along,
holding wrinkled hands
seagulls swooping down to eat
stray food
the tides are the greatest sight
so relentess
in, out
in, out
never tiring
always happy to please,
those who swim in the water
always laughing at teasing,
those at
the waters edge

I wanted to express what you can see at the beach, etc.

This is really good, ur great at imagery...but for me it doesn't seem like a poem, more of a really really short story!

Define normality. Define different. Make yourself clear. Leave nothing to chance. Give every thing your all. Let the games begin.
