Away to the Sea..........

The din of noise behind me as if time
itself were left behind
The water ......cool but not too cool
chatter and noises of children
playing.....squealing|
I watch as a child plays in the sea
and sand ...a bucket ..plastic cup
and a bonnet to shield
from the sun
And a mom impatient with the son
all she wants is a nap.....
" Go play in the water then "
A father lathering sunblock on his teenage girls
his wife smiles at
their world.........
And all is well as the sun
burns itself down
Down and away to the sea
When this world is over when
man's reign has declined and whats left
of him washes back into the sea as
so much dust...........to mix once again
with the sea ...........
Then and only then .....I hope that whats left is
for a beach full of children squeeling
in the sun dancing in the surf
and living in a heaven
away to the sea........

Nepal is a land lock country so sea is much desired thing here? You ushered me into the sea, my friend.

Sounds like Jamaica to me. So many beaches and the water is always welcoming.

I don't miss the point daddy! To be young by the sea....for that matter....to be young again!! I will never enjoy the sea the way I did when I was young. It's almost as if I wait for the sand blasting sun and salty air to strip the years away, so I can be as a child again! Love and hugs always!!
