Brighton Beach



a polished coin

glimmering in the cerulean sky,

gazing fondly over the

glittering azure blanket

that rustles and foams

beneath.


murmuring chiffon waves

caress wet silken pebbles,

enchanted by the sparkling

synthesis of sunbeams

with the prancing droplets

below.


warbling gulls pirouette

through the whispering breeze,

a welcome reprieve from the

stifling gilded pressure

emanating from

above.


when the wind roars

and the waves roil

and the air grips us

in its frigid maw, it's

easy to forget this side of you.

but you have reminded us

once more.
