Sea Glass By chelsiewehde Sea glass on the beach Captured by the waves and brought right to my feet As I look through it, The sea glass reflects all I've ever wanted to see We are all here for the same purpose, though no one knows it The warmth of the sand on my feet matches the fire that wallows up inside me A loud laugh here A whiff of salt there Ice cream on his tongue Summer. The worries of life are washed away with the waves The love that comes from pure freedom abounds And joy is no longer frowned upon as a luxury, but a reality Your wide smile is no longer out of place in the world, But you are now accepted here. No loneliness Nothing but giggles and carefree smiles are found here at the beach Summer. An entry point for different people, changing times. But peace covers who ever cares to come. Old feuds forgotten Arguments turned into laughter Limbs entwined Hot breath mingling together Hands mixed with strands of hair Eyes reflecting the flaming fireworks Lips tasting of salt water The beads of sweat running down our back. Perspiration soaked shirts. Sticky skin. Blistered feet. Colors so vivid they hurt the eyes. Skin so scorched it burns a brilliant red Endless skies Clear oceans Pure intentions Overwhelming love Summer. An orange Sunrise bursts on the open water New Beginnings Not a cloud in sight The Sun high in the sky signals an intense feeling of Immortality...everlasting days. Purple hues capture the sun and pull it back to the sea A sadness surfaces with the realization that our momentary escape is fading with the light. Dusk arrives and the air of completion is final We struggle to say all we put off saying during the day Summer. Frantic kisses are stolen As if we are all trying to find another way to breathe The threat of tomorrow hangs over our heads We embrace and hold each other tightly, trying to preserve the moment Don't end, oh beautiful day Twilight has come. But love still remains. Summer's joy is infectious And as life begins again Worries resume Sea salt dries And is washed away with the sand But that breathtaking exhilaration sleeps inside us all Waiting for the day where it can awaken again Summer.
