The salty breeze blows
As I enter the calm, crystal water.
It tickles my nose and
Gently eases up against my skin.
I can almost taste the salt
With its lingering texture consuming me.
I forget about my life.
I forget about what must be done tomorrow.
I live in the moment,
Capturing every minute.
I look to the flaming horizon
Throwing blotches of red and yellow into the sky.
They dance so effortlessly.
So slowly and peacefully they waltz
In a circular motion
Until they begin to fall and start to fade.
