If I could describe the waves so you could hear them,
Or the salt spray so you could taste it.
If my words could make you squint at the sun shimmering on the water
Or make spongy sand appear beneath your feet
Or an ocean breeze ruffle through your hair.
If only I could impart the peace of this place,
But my efforts are meager at best,
For how can a small-time poet ever expect to out-write God?
