Summer’s winding down, but the memories made will linger. Come with me and revisit your favorite island getaway, if only in your mind.
Come walk with me on sifted sands
Along my island shores
Come find the peace within yourself
That leaves you wanting more
The gentle swells, the rolling waves
Will mesmerize your heart
The azure skies, the silent breeze
You’ll never want to part
The moon will rise to greet you there
To cleanse your weary soul
The lofty palms will wave to you
And whisper ‘please don’t go’
by Diane M How
Where is your favorite beach? I’d love to hear from you.
