My little girl was 19 or 20 when we went to the beach on a warm Sunday afternoon. She is so unique. I wrote this for her scrapbook as it was inspired by the day and the photos I took of her. I could not remove the original photos from the scrapbook and they are not digitized. So I uploaded a scanned photo from that day.

The sea foam floats in marbled patterns
 atop the resting waters between waves.

We gaze in wonder at nature’s splendor
 as it lulls us to our own inner peace.
My child has a rotund shape that lends itself to silliness
 as she runs to the latrine.
The quake of my laugh shakes off the stresses
 of several weeks gone by.
Stooping with hunched shoulders like an older lady,
 my child-like adult searches the tide’s debris.
Her discoveries are treasures in her eyes only
 the soft-worn broken shapes of shell and rock.
Surrounded by the warm humid scent of the sea,
 as we rest on our outstretched blanket.
We observe her wonderment from this vantage
 half slumbering, half enraptured by her innocence.
