On The Boardwalk

Bikini Smiles
        On The Boardwalk
Fiery horizon clouds hover the Sun on the boardwalk
Sandy sandals worn shades flipped over head
Now more relaxed walking than sitting watching
Girls in and out the ocean fingers fixing bikinis
The Sun settled offering yet a deep lavender night
The water the wide beach the sand the foam glow
In a sheen of diffused light a pastel pink topaz
Soft goodnight kisses blowing from the mermaidens
Strolling on the boardwalk watching bare feet giggling girls
Summer dresses brush the walk high bikinis above hips
Got no cares youthful laughters so infectious sweet smiles
You blush you hunger for fudge ice cream caramel popcorn
Out of the water into the sands the white foams
From dark dusty sea floor a few hundred feet
Under down from the sea grand canyons all day
Apollo had warmed tiny bubbles of air to surface
The very essence of summertime seagulls tiptoeing
The rustling feathering surf the gentle rush of waves
Soothing crescendoes intermezzo lullabies you hear
Like folding waves fading receding onto shores echoing
The Sun beats down sunscreen held tight to your skin
Bikinis loose cool summer dresses sunscreens sweet smiles
Laughters like the self luminescent fragile fireflies of the sea
Deep in the dark crevices of the ocean floor on the boardwalk
Become friendly chameleon images channelling harm away
Another lick of the ice cream fudge you smile as it drips onto the tub of caramel popcorn... ah... summertime...
Let me have my caramel popcorn and eat it too

"oppses" in case you're wondering is my iPad's suggested spelling for "oops", referring to the dripping ice cream. Oh, well so much for spell checkers. :-))

Yes the sight has a way of clinging to you a few days after the beach time. Nice short lived memory and to come back to comes hibernation winter. Thanks Brod for the like.
