lying on the beach

A memory of a beautiful morning on the Lennox beach protected from the sun but with sandy toes and a sandy pillow.

lying on the beach

in leafy-pandanus shade
a floppy summer hat
covers my face

and through its plaited fibres
sky shimmers purple-blue red and gold

ocean unaware of its charm
stretches languidly towards me
with a lullaby
my breath eavesdrops on its rhythm
warm sand pillows me
sifts between my toes

and i stay all morning
one with sand and sea and sky
being all this
it being all me
