The Ocean

by Melissa Minners


I close my eyes

Lay upon the sand

And open myself up

To the beauty at hand


Hear the waves

Crash upon the shore

Gobbling up sand

Still yearning for more


A misty spray

Caressing my skin

Arousing a sense

Of tranquility within


Smell the air

Salty yet clean

Open my eyes

To take in the scene


Waters bright blue

Wave caps of white

A tremendous beauty

Whether daybreak or night
