Cooling air breathes life into all who rest by her shores. Waves ripples and crest in a primordial rhythm that sculpts red sands into serpentine sketches. Hermit crabs scuttle and play as they seek sustenance in tidal pools that warm under the afternoon sun. A trio of Spruce frame a far shore brushed with reds and greens, as flecks of white and wheat confirm the presence of others. My spirit is refreshed and enlightened by ocean breezes.
