To Be There Again

Israel is a fan of many types of music and loves to write, not in any particular order and does them usually at the same time.

To be there again,

I walked the shores of that coast,

Looking as far out as my eyes would carry me,

This place brings peace to my weary soul,

Removes all negativity,

I smile,

A genuine smile,

The sand under my feet,

In between my toes,

The sun makes it presences known on my face,

I look up and close my eyes,

Take a deep breath,


A perfect moment,

Everything is so clear,

All doubt removed,

The waves roar as they come crashing down,

A slight breeze shows itself,

It's gone,

Now its back,


The water rolls up to my feet covering them,

The chill of the ocean travels through my body,

Oh, to be alive in such a place,

An awakening experience,

It's always on mind,

I crave it,

I miss it,

I miss the ocean,

To be there again...

      I grew up a ten minute walk from the beach. The sounds and smells are implanted in my mind forever. Your poem described it to a t. Thank you for reminding me of so many peaceful pleasures.
