100 Waves

I sat upon the sea wall dawn,
Watched the horizon where grey met blue
Somewhere beyond the Sun was coming,
Still yet to rise to meet this day
Waves moved in as a timid swish
Sands scampered in confusing wash,
As though unsure their lay today
Few the gulls a cry here and there,
Even the wind whispered,
As though in a reverent prod
Glancing again to the line of blue,
A peek, a peck on the distant waters edge
Waking was slow as the rays broke through,
Foretelling the blessing, we’d yet to live
Rays brandished the water,
Spilling the gold,
Exploding the waves into brilliant prose
Warmth curling their beauty,
Rushing forward in mirth
One two three soon to be more,
In a matter of minutes there was pleasure on the shore
Just like a woman in the arms of a man :)
I counted the waves and got lost in the excitement
My mind overdosing,
On the beauty coming ashore
Walking to the edge, I buried my toes,
Soon the sands welcomed me inch by inch
By ninety five I was ready to dive,
At ninety nine my knees were in a salty soak
Glancing to the horizon the sun fully awake
Kisses of sea breezes and rays left on my cheeks
One hundred waves had now rushed to the shore
Curled in its wake, I washed into my day
Lying on the sands not a soul in sight
I pondered the reason
Why anyone would not wake
Quiet beauty spoke the loudest
Honored and enriched
Anyone who would listen with a thirsting heart
Alone but happy I am embracing my day
The wealthiest of them all
In the sand where I lay :)
Good Morning!
