Love at the Beach

21 04 2012

-For JS

Sandy toes and sunburned cheeks

Salty laughs and seaweed hair

Sunset walks and laced fingertips

Love for a week, love at the beach

More for convenience than anything

Just because you can

No strings attached

Merely for fun

For the sake of touching someone

Those rolls in the sand

Not exactly lust

But something close

Just because we can

Freedom to tease and kiss

Knowing love at the beach

Is the sort that lasts a week

The silent sneak off the balcony

And the giggles muffled not too well

Sea oat hide-and-go seek

And midnight sandcastles

Love at the beach

The purest you’ll find

No “If only”s

Or ‘But wait”s

At the closing goodbye

You’re suddenly shy

But then you grin

You kiss and shake hands

No sad parting

Just a halved cockle shell

“Twas nice and I wish you well

You walk away with one last kiss

Knowing that love at the beach

Will expire after a week

Wonderfully expressed, the fleeting, fragile joy of holiday romance….. 🙂

So true, but in a way I feel it can be stronger than the more lengthy, gradual love. No idiosyncrasies, disagreements to suffer through. Though it is not necessarily better.

I love the anti-sentimentality of this poem…that this brief ‘why not’ kind of connection is ‘The purest you’ll find…’ Just allowing itself to be…not turning the world upside-down…but of course, at the same time, it might. I love writing that offers a wisdom that might also be a folly. At least, fools do know how to enjoy themselves!
