The ephemeral glow of the sun,
rising above the ocean.
Light rays reach out, like the hands
of a god offering eternal tranquility.
Gossamer glaze covering
photographs that never do justice to reality.
Shells resplendent, beaming
from their home in the sand.
Houses perched on the dunes,
spellbound by the gentle rush of water.
Seagulls, lackadaisical in manner,
witness to the scene.
