Everyone connects & relates to beaches in a different way!
Do you go there to watch the ripples & waves,
Or to peacefully sort out your thoughts!
Do you feel your mind calming down while watching the waves?
Or do you want to jump in the water and splash around!
Do you like playing with water
Or do you play run-and-catch with it!
Do you like building sand castles
Or just sit and doodle in the sand!
Do you like to visit by yourself?
Or do you prefer going with lots of family & friends!
Do you like water sports?
Or do you like just flailing around in the water!
Do you like to swim or snorkel
Or do you like to collect the shells around?
Do you get lost in the beach?
Or do you find “yourself” there!
Do you visit one on a sunny day?
Or love to visit one while it rains?
Do you go there to watch the sun rise?
Or do you love sunsets on the beach?
Do you like the pina-coladas
Or the salted mangoes & peanuts?
No matter what – beaches are always there
extending their beauty for us to marvel!
Taking away all our worries
and replacing them with pleasant memories!
Some beaches around the world!
Wrote this for a friend who has been stuck at home in the pandemic & is missing the water and the beauty!
If you liked it, do share it with someone who is missing visiting beaches!
