I sit snuggled in the sand, observing the sun with a halo of red and orange as it ascends from your depth. A coy breeze flirts with mussed up curls, as the odor of the salt and seaweed go deep into my nostrils.

Far into the horizon–endless undulating ripples of azure. A temptation not to be resisted. A raft two feet wide and six feet long and we ram against wind and wave to our destination. Soon, arms situated, I dangle in the gentle currents of your embrace. Goggles and a lowering of the head and a streamlined dance of minute silver fish is taking place. Raft slips, and I’m a liberated speck in satiated infinite space.

The midpoint between where the sky meets sea and coast - a mild inhalation and wave after wave is in activation. More air fills your ample lungs and a courageous rise in amplitude, and we play that game.

At first I seal my mouth shut, then duck and hide as you gush to shore. Then I float and ride relishing in resignation as your rumble sprints to roar. Soon the azure transforms to baby blue, and a crescendo as we approach a destiny of golden hue.

Lastly you relax and go gentle. Your froth fizzes as you affectionately tease the wetted sand. Salacious sensations ooze between wiggling toes on the supple land.
As I turn to face away, I blink twice. The sun sets in the backdrop of a mirage of a white washed cottage with a front porch facing the sea. A phantasm of you, sometimes in jeans and other times in khaki shorts seated there grinning as you wave.
