A DAY AT THE BEACH/the sunday whirl #362 poets united poets pantry imaginary gardens with real toads



As I sat on the staircase

And dreamed myself away

Anywhere anytime

Somewhere else…


On the Texas coast

The Gulf of Mexico

Enchantment by the sea

We did not have to travel far


Volleyball in the sand

Just a little trip

Another world

Sand on the beach


Stretched as far as you could see

Waves rolled to the shore

To crash over you and me

A large picnic basket


And a blue ice chest

A day at the beach

What a gift it was

Take pictures of day


Memories stored deep in the heart

Would not soon fade away

The sun set in the west

A bonfire


To light up the beach

Soon it was time

To shake out the sand

Fold up the quilt

And return to our everyday
