The horizon stretches
to infinity as cerulean sky
the sky embraces the sea with a kiss,
and I feel as though I must soon melt
into the foaming, salty waters
trickling through my toes.
The sun beats harshly upon the crown of my head,
and my skin prickles,
droplets of moisture surfacing
amongst the bloom of heat on my cheeks.
I inhale the tangy seaweed,
and squint into the distance
as Oyster Catchers sift through the wet sand.
I am at peace,
and yet, this beauty is almost unbearable.
