Ode to the Beach

By: Hannah Lutz

I walked down the wooden steps

They were as scorching as the sun

I found sweet relief in the sand

While it was still warm,

It soothed my now burnt feet

I remember how the sand shined

and glistened

in the sunlight


I stared at the turquoise waters

The waters seemed to be interminable

The ocean was a sapphire

And the waves crashing by the shore,

looked like glass shattering

My affection for the beach was instilled at a young age


The beach is pure joy

Spending time with family,

and friends

Building enormous sandcastles

Taking a nap on warm sand

that feels like a soft bed


The happiness I feel while visiting the beach,

Hearing the seagulls squawk and the waves crash,

Feeling the suns hot rays and cooling off in the sea

The sea was as cold as ice

That happiness is incomparable to anything else
