Sunshine pours over my skin
Warms my insides from within
Muscles relaxed under noonday sun
Removes anxiety once begun
Limbs flail like a rag doll
Leaves one limp like alcohol

A cool breeze touches my soul
In this place, Playa de Sol
Children cavort in the waves
Oblivious to nights that follow days
Sand castles succumb to tides
Before the sun begins to hide

Moonlit sky directs two lovers
Walking the beach with one another
Red wine warms the two
Before the sky turns to blue
Lone footprints mark the trail
Before fishing boats set sail

Their walk awaits the refrain
Of a breakfast feast of harvest grain
Morning air fills their soul
As they look upon the sandy shore
Another day beckons the two
To count their blessings with life renewed

Nice and well-rhymed verses, a tribute to love and its after-glow.
