Beach Side Innocence - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

Pristine white sands in their untarnished radiance
As parents and tiny tots wander to its glorious presence
For an eve on the waterfront's immaculate glory
To bask in the sun shine even share a fairytale story

The tots running and falling on the naked sands
As their buttocks kiss and caress the dunes and bands
As the white sands unlock a glorious horizon's view
People flock to the pier telescopes to gaze at the horizon's hue

Children run on the sands chasing sea larks
Scampering about in their innocent sparks
As the white sands blend with the aquamarine of the ocean
The larks share a chirping song to the vast open

The winds unlock as the ferocious pouts of Aeolus blow
Near the horizon there lies an oil carrier in a gentle flow
Across the sun's horizon like a slap across a forgiving face
As the sun smiles to a mechanical creature in grace

The children scamper to the swirling waves
As the lifeguards watch for the next set of saves
Under the watchful eye of the ever present parents
To counter the dangers presented by the unpredictable torrents

Waves to the beach come frolicking and folding
As the shrieks of joy echo to all corners cavorting and screaming
The splendor of nature in its tumbling effervescence
Bringing hoards of happiness to boundless innocence

The kites fly in their vibrant arrays of colors
As the winds rock and twirl the flying orbiters
As the tug of the wind counters the pulls of the fist
A helping hand from grown-ups to counter the raging mist

A beach brings together families of all races and ethnicities as one
A beach brings forth happiness to sparkle in masses of fun
A beach lives in collections of memories, photos and sketches
As a beach essentially lives as a favorite place in the psyche that etches
