"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."

I walk down the shore,

Sand squishing under my feet,

I watch the ocean waves splash,

The smell of salt and the water fills the air,

Sea Gulls fly above me,

The clouds drift away,

The sky, bright and blue, looks so vivid,

I can see a small fishing pier in the distance,

I hear the birds squawks and cries,

I feel the cool waves cover my feet,

Fragments of shells line the ground,

I can see an island and a ferry,

Soon the sunset will light up the sky with beautiful colors,

And I can just keep working for hours.

We don't exactly have the cleanest beaches in Staten Island, but I really love the ocean and I wanted to write something about it that would show all its beauty. BTW, this poem is about a clean beach. lol.
