Seagulls dance in a gusting wind
Symphonic silence, winged ballet
A loan cloudlet drifting lazily
Touching the horizon, edge of sea

Outstretched hands of a beachside palm
Gentle sway in the salty breeze
Sun-kissed sands in a tidal ebb
Sculpted perfection blankets shore

Water's edge slipping out to sea
Lapping waves crest, then fall away
Shimmering ripplets, slow retreat
Undertow crescendo, frothing deep

A boat slip towers high above
Starfish and urchins cling beneath
Plankton floating, in shallows drift
Remnants trailing the tidal flow
