Sensations at the Shore

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #397 - Teeming Shore

"We celebrate summer with a trek to the beach. The shore beckons us to write a poem on its inspiration. As always, branch out in any direction as you shore up your verse. Write the sights, sounds, smells of the shore. A sunset appeals, as does a sunrise, sea gulls and swarms of swimmers … take the plunge and write it!"

Scents of salt and seaweed greet you
soon as your bare feet touch soft sand.
Sea breeze tickles skin as you stand
at lacy hem of aqua blue.

Bravely you dip a toe or two
waiting for roll of wave as planned.
Scents of salt and seaweed greet you
soon as your bare feet touch soft sand.

Hear seagulls screech their cackling tune
and peck at sand near bodies tanned.
In the distance your hear a band
on the boardwalk.  It must be noon.
Scents of salt and seaweed greet you.
