Weather Forecast

It’s a purple and mauve sunset with a glowing orb of orange in the middle of the horizon.  It emits peace and calm as repeating waves lap the shore.  There are no plans ahead nor places that need to be visited.  There is just tranquility to be enjoyed.  Perhaps a stroll is in order to warm up appendages and increase breathing and heart rate;  or perhaps, a prone position on the couch with a top throw to lure the black cat who likes to cuddle and purr on tree branch legs. Of course there’s a book nearby to settle the mind with promise of an engaging plot and characters who hold as much promise as a new day.

The warm coastal winds blow back hair and cool the skin.  They lift the seagulls higher as they surf the windy sky looking for a bed in which to lie in the sandy dunes.  The birds are content and fulfilled after a day of adventure and discovery.  They soar up then down, and they are ready to rest and sleep.  

All are harmonious at the beach.  Each living creature has a place and a purpose.  They’re synthesis creates one of the special places on our planet Earth.

  1. Such powerful imagery here. I love “tree-branch legs” and the picture of seagulls looking for a bed. This is beautiful snippet that makes me feel tranquil just reading it.
