Adoptive Home - Poem by Della Perry

Smooth, black pebbles adorn warm salty sands
Along the bay we prefer.
Placid sea laps at a peaceful beach
Disguising its ruthless strength.
A jutting rock face reaches out, touching milky waves
As they ripple around stone feet.
Enclosing the beach guardians of broken stone stand unmovable
While seagulls sing out their joy.
A bronzing sun stared down at children, families, playing, having fun.
For the winds have blown storm clouds away, if only for today.
Stretching far, a wooden pier
Legs steady, unwavering, strong.
Bright lights glistening out to a carefree sea.
Our enchanting adoptive home
Where the urge to return must not be ignored
Each year as summer dawns.
