The sun sits high, its reflection shimmering off my skin.
I dip my toes in the water and wiggle them
in the sand, as they bury themselves into the

cold
damp
earth.

The foamy waves crash into the shore,
allowing my baked skin to let out a sigh
of relief.
My iPod puts the rest of the world on
mute as it
drowns out the squeals of children and
the songs of seagulls.

The sky is painted a soft blue with little

puffs
of
white,

splattered throughout.
Lying back, the ocean waves crawl up to
my neck,
and then back down to my feet over and over and over.

Wisps of wind morph the white puffs into different characters,
taking me to a world of bliss and
peacefulness.
I breathe. It's 2 p.m.
and I am free.

This poem kind of.. takes you into the world that you were writing about, through all that carefully chosen detail. Really nice.

Could you maybe have a look at my poems? 'Dream Poem' and my little Haiku?

I love this poem. You really know how to explain every detail and use you punctuation nicely. Great work!
