Local Social Network for the Arts Community in Central Valley

I could walk miles and miles

of beach.

Climb over dunes covered in blooming succulents.

 Just to remember back to the Easter eggs we never found

buried in the sand,

or the abalone we stole from the sea.

I made swimming pools for my dolls

out of those precious shells.

It was not until I grew older and farther away from the waves and the sand

That I realized

what the shells and the cool wind were worth to me.

If I could hold one of those lost shells to my ear

maybe I could hear my mother call my name again.

I bring my children to the sea

So when I am gone

The waves and the wind will remind them of me

And the happiness and the laughter we stole from the beach.
