COLD MORNING AT THE BEACH





COLD MORNING AT THE BEACH

Sand blowing
Sea birds calling
Dogs running
Children skipping ~
Cold morning at the beach

People talking
Friends walking
Someone swimming
Others jogging~ 
Cold morning at the beach.

Pelicans flying past
White caps on the water
People watching
From their cars ~
Cold morning at the beach.

Old friends reminiscing
Memories of people missing
Two old mates on a bench
Remembering other days ~
Cold morning at the beach.

Lapping water
Pools and shells
Seaweed with its musty smells
Shell grit under foot ~
Cold morning at the beach.

A cargo ship on the horizon
A yacht with sails unfurled
Motor boat soon passing
Foaming water in its wake;
Cold morning at the beach.

Sunshine and shadow
Grey clouds across the sky
People walking together
And others quite alone ~
Cold morning at the beach.

Pewter coloured water
Beneath a steel grey sky
A Kiosk serving coffee
A busy place indeed ~
Cold morning at the beach..

In my young and fool hardy days, I would have been the one swimming. Now that I have more sense a coffee in the car would be me.
