coral beach

walking down through lush
red and white,
tiny butterflies rise around us
in unison
we reach the beach
salt spray fills the air 
white sand of shell
and coral
and we stare at the infinite horizon
breathless with the beauty
washed pure in our own thoughts.

This is about a beautiful beach on the Isle Of Skye that I visited many years ago but the smell of the sea, clover and that gorgeous white sand remain with me.

Go to The Mag to see the other poets work
