A Day at the Beach // by Adrian J. (April 2018)

I feel the warmth of the sun beating on my back
With sunscreen in my pack

I head off for the day
Hoping for an adventure and some time to play

I see the waves crashing on the shore
My castle is no more

Smelling the salt in the air
Looking at the fish and thinking it’s no fair

I too wish I can stay and play
But as the sun goes down, I have to call it a day
