1 Beach, 2 Hours, 3 Cousins

Wind-tossed hair,
red hot cheeks.
Sunscreen-glooey sanded limbs.
The gulls and children mimic each other.
Waves upon mud cakes,
topped with stick candles and riverweed icing.
Digging for shells with our toes,
rewarded with a heart-shaped rock.
Three yellow-lifejacketed ducklings bobbing.
Ice cream.
Oozing chins,
sticky sweet kisses.
Timeless sitting and listening to the wind,
slowly drying in the sun,
watching children play out of arm’s reach.
Something eases inside,
stretches its wings,
and takes off to the sound of screeching giggles.
