A Happy Place
As the sun peaks over the ocean
Drying up the dew from the dark
The ships appear in the distance
Ready for the day to come
Tourist and beach goers slowly
Make their way to the cold sand
Not yet beaten by the sun, just
Appearing above the blue waters
To greet the day to come.
The restaurants nearby begin to
Fill with hungry tourist who will
Also eventually make their way
To the beach, enjoying the sand between
Their toes and the cool ocean water.
Bicyclist, skateboarders, and skaters
travel the pavement between the beach
And hotels where I long to be.
Where I find comfort and peace.
