Sun rays bounce off clear water, profounding.

Fresh sea mist sucker-punch my senses then.

I relish the salty air, surrounding.

Diving...submerging myself in again...

It pierces my body once more, the heat.

Dripping, sinking into sand, drops of sweat.

Very little green here, dragging my feet.

I love the sand though, that I can't forget...

The crispy air fills my lungs from this high height.

Beneath my hands, as I climb, rocks are warm.

I prize most of all the breath-taking sight...

Every angle, glances bring a green form.

In such big forests, trees are everywhere...

Love do I this thing called nature, I swear.

The author's comments:
I'm not good at sonnets, and I (my toughest critic) will be the first to say how incredibly boring this is. However, in 8th grade we had to write sonnets, and I wrote this, and put a lot of effort into it, so I kept a copy of it, even though I though it sucked. Now I've posted it here, even though I still think it sucks, because I remember how much effort I put into it.
