The Ocean Poem

I hear loud noises 

I walk to find it 

I see the white caps 

crash on the horizon 

Ahead of me 

I spot the beach 

Sand on my toes 

Birkenstock’s on my feet 

The water is rising 

I quickly jump in 

I can not waste a minute 

I have to go swim

Such a perfect day 

Beautiful sun rays 

The blue green water 

It sparkles at me 

The wave piles on top of me 

I can’t see

I spit out salt 

I can’t breathe 

My body got a nice tan 

The tide is getting low 

Eight hours later 

I think it’s time to go home
