Sand falls from an outstretched hand.
Vibrantly white, soft as talcum powder.
Toes dig in seeking shade from the sun
On a sweltering hot day under pale blue skies.
A bead of sweat rolls down her neck,
only to be cooled by a warm breeze.
Waves lap onto the shore,
Washing thoughts and stress away.
Now she’s ready to live another day.
