Sunshine tickles
her faded freckles

misty breeze sways
her mahogany braids

the scent of salt water infiltrates her senses

a crisp aroma
a sigh of bliss

she ambles across the expanse
of burnt caramel sand

toes submerge for a second then
back above sea level for a breath

a trail of imprints contours
cusps into the coastline

waves steadily crash
into the cobblestone rubble

tides thump the towering drums
beside a crag

the cadence of her breaths
stable, sure
echo the tide’s heartbeat.

I'm not going to criticize this poem or give constructive feedback because I can't. It's too beautiful for that. Amazing job!
