The Beach On Amelia Island

Looking out toward the horizon
The calm water is a panoply of blue
Cerulean, cobalt, azure

Dots of light dance on sand
Reveling to the comforting sounds of gentle waves

A lone gull stoically stands on sea foam
Pensive, yet wary

I imagine on the other side of the ocean
Berber women carrying figs and dates to market
