Waves



I remember
the hot sand that burned my skin,
as the powerful wind pushed me into the water.

I tiptoed
through the crystal ocean
until it reached my belly button.  

I remember
a wave pushed me down
till the tip of my nose touched the sand.
I struggled to the top,
panicked
as the sand tugged me  back.

I was amazed to see the seaweed
waving around
like a Mexican wave.   

I remember feeling the tickle
of the seaweed
on my feet.

I struggled to the top,
panicked
as the sand tugged me  back.

I swam up gasping for breath,
salty water pushed through
my mouth .  

I rushed  
with all my strength
out of the water

A sigh
of relief
came across me .
