first beach day (day 140)

in the sand i shed my strength
baring what i feared to share
faced the waves openly
entering the ocean’s lair

i let the sea battle me
each wave a punch, push or shove,
know i was sure to fail
until i learned to dance above

when the sand had left its scratch
i made my way back to the shore
while the waves tossed me back
begging me to play some more
