Wet On The Beach

Went to the beach

To watch the sunset

Over the clear Gulf waters

A storm had passed

With towering clouds

Dropping rain and wind

The air tasted of salt

Those clouds soon parted

To allow visibility of the setting globe of fire

It was a long moment

As the light sheened brightly

Across the gentle waves

Reflecting off high darkened clouds

For that moment 

I became young again

To view the world 

Thru the eyes of a child

My full vision turned a rich pink

Muted with shades of blacks, greys, and whites

Wispy like cotton candy in the sky….
