A white sandy beach
Young child racing through the grains
Spies a tiny shell
Resting in a tidal pool
Waiting to be claimed
Shells upon the beach
One by one they are picked up

And because I’ve been singing this one all morning.
Thought I would share.
Somewhere deep inside my head
Stir this winter day
Dancing barefoot in the surf
Splashing in the waves
For more prompts like “whimsy” go here: A Week for Writing
A shady palm tree
Escaping to paradise
Soaking up the sea

Sitting with my toes
Firmly planted in the sand
Underneath a loud flapping palm tree
That’s my first attempt at Sidlak Poetry. I would love to hear some thoughts on it and I would love to see what you can do. Post your Sidlak poem either in the comments section or your own blog. Swing back over and leave me your link so I can check it out.
Great version of this Buffett classic.
Listening to the waves crash
Feet in warm soft sand
