Beach - Poem by Justin Reamer

Oh, how wonderful
The beach is,
For it is so beautiful,
Especially to be able to
See the lake from this kind
Of distance.

The air is so beautiful here,
And you can feel the breeze
Coming from the lake,
And the lake is so blue,
And the waves are so big,
And the crash against the shore
So wonderful,
And the sky is blue,
And the sun is shining,
And there is not a single cloud in the sky,
For it is the most wonderful thing.

There are so many people here,
And they all love it,
For there are girls in bikinis,
Each in groups hanging out
And tanning on the lakeshore,
Lying down on towels,
Or simply walking in
The water,
And there are men in trunks,
Working out in the lake,
Swimming like
There is no tomorrow,
Friends jumping off the pier
Together,
And having fun swimming in
The waves
And climbing
The ladder together,
And families
All wandering
And relaxing,
And playing with
Their children
And digging in the sand,
And burying each other,
And making sand castles,
And couples standing close together,
Walking along the shore,
And holding each other's hands,
Experiencing romance,
And others playing games in the water,
Chasing each other around,
And flirting,
And men playing volleyball
In the nets,
And others playing newcome,
Where the volleyballs are,
And others playing catch
In the water.

The people are having so
Much fun,
That it makes me happy
To see this,
But I must say
That I am here for a different reason.

I am a thinker,
And the lake helps me think,
For it inspires me for creativity,
And it gives me chances to reflect.

Here, I can think
About the past,
About the present,
And about the future.

I can think about my relationships,
And about famous people,
And about other things.

However, as I stand here,
I think about my novel
That I am working on,
And how I am going to write it,
For I am connecting everything
And trying to make it work.

While at the same time,
I think about my past,
Such as my father
Who left me long ago,
And my family I live with now,
And my future that I am uncertain of.

I still do not know what to think,
But I do enjoy the beauty of the lake,
For I love to here it
And see the great beauty
Of the large blue water,
That expands across the horizon.

There is nothing that gets
Better than this,
Being able to see the
Beauty of the beach first hand,
And I love it all the more.
