    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


    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


    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


    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


    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
