You lay back in the sun
after a long hard run.
The ocean’s waves lap the shore,
and you relax down to your core.
Your eyes close, your muscles unwind.
Tension leaves your body and mind.
As you slowly drift off to sleep,
happy thoughts, your dreams keep.
The sun shining, the sky clear,
nary a cloud found far or near.
Time goes by, then slowly you wake,
rising from the sand with a shake.
Running your fingers through your hair,
sand, sand everywhere.
Hair and clothes now free of sand,
feeling connected to the land.
Your feet moving, your mind now free,
your thoughts as happy as can be.
Towards home, you go, leaving the beach,
your dreams now feel within reach.
