A Sunset Shore

Rahimeen Lodhi 2005 (Toronto)

A splash of different shades of blue,
That sprinkles on my face like dew.
The delicate golden sand lay sunken at my feet,
I stand at the shore, where land and sea meet.
The air brushed against my cheek like a kiss,
And the setting sun adds to the bliss.
The shells that lay still on my palm,
As the gentle waves roll so calm.
The wind whistles and the daisies dance,
How nature entwines is the greatest romance.
The breeze whispers "go", as it tickles my ear,
Thus I ran to the water that seems so clear.
The ripples I create as I trod in its flow,
As my face basks in the sunset glow.
A duvet of twinkling beads fall,
Alas, the sea-submerged creatures begin the crawl.
From sea to shore, they emerge from the deep,
In search of sanctuary do they creep.
On the rugged cliffside do the tall waves crash,
Stroll too near and you're devoured in a flash.
The enchanting coast has me stunned to my core,
I wish to cherish it 'til I'm no more
