Across the expanse of shore
The pines grew. Tall and small. Fragrant.
Swaying, gently in the breeze.
Her toes curled in the cool water.
The smooth stones shone in the early light.
Gleaming like more precious stones
as the water moved over them.
Ebbed and flowed. The waves rolled calmly in.
The soft hum of birds as they woke filled the air.
She was sure that heaven would be like this.
Calm and warm. Soothing. Sensual. Beautiful. Natural.
Smelling of pine trees and ocean breeze.
