Girl Seated by the Seashore

On the Seashore, George Elgar Hicks, 1879

Girl Seated by the Seashore, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

The salt in the air
The ocean breeze in my hair
The sun shines above
The white sand between my toes
The slow life that I have chose

Life at the blue sea
Without question completes me
Giving peace of mind
No matrix needed to learn
No other place do I yearn

See the breaking dawn
Walking in the early morn
Listen to the waves
Each gently rolling my way
Each a little child at play

Days never a bore
The coast with much to explore
Gifts from rising tide
Such interesting treasures
Providing countless pleasures

The glow of the ball
Of bright orange sends its call
Day is near its end
Clouds looking like neon lights
My watching eyes it excites

Seagulls leave the shore
I retreat behind my door
With little to say
But offering thanks I pray
That I was given this day
