231. Ocean.



Fun, sun, sea and sand
A little coastal town down south.
The smell of the sea so crusty, so salty.
The ocean's insistent nonstop beating,
Crashing on the sun-kissed shores.

Far on the horizon, a big ship disappears out of view.
The setting sun..so hauntingly picturesque, 
Slowly dipping for  another night's slumber.

As I watch , I weave and etch all in my memory bank.
Taking in all sights and sounds and people around
What  magical Splendor..God's great  Earth !
