A Stroll Along the Shore

Breathing an intoxicating
ozone lung elixir,
swirling sea aromas
like an ocean cocktail mixer…

Sinking to the toenails,
feeling suction on bare feet,
that kisses naked insteps
in a sandy massage treat…

Squinting at the blue-on-blue
where water laps the sky
and drowns all shallow musing
in a repetitious sigh…

This is when the dreamer
opens eyes that were resigned
and pushes back the cobweb habits
wrapped around the mind.
