Treasure Island

Beach Girl


Sand in My Toes


Sand in my toes
Scorched burning feet
Ran to the water
Got outta the heat

White frothy waves
Crashed over my head
Began to feel naughty
Bandeau was soon shed

Fled to my beach towel
Was freezing to death
The cold blue Pacific
Does fill one with zest

    I have no fear of shark attack,
    what I hate about the beach,
    is sand in my crack!

    Love your fast wit in beautiful brevity (Report) Reply

    This is wonderful, it conveys the experience of being on the beach with both the highs and the lows. I haven't been to a beach in ages (we don't have much of that where I live) so this was like a vacation for me. ^^ (Report) Reply

    thanks for the rhyming. thanks for sharing. i saw you, i think:

    She searched for her beach towel,
    her bandeau loose in her hand.
    With binoculars well-focused,
    I missed her toes coated with sand.

    white sugary sand
    pasted in snow coated toes
    sparkle in sunlight
    washed in white frothy waves - I like your style (Report) Reply

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
