All around me are reminders of
The ocean and the beach
Just as well then really
That I live in easy reach

For it is just a walk away
Ten minutes at the most
Another simple pleasure
Of living by the coast

All these little keepsakes
Tactile treasures to retain
Added to the next time
Iā€™m at the beach again

  3. love it Jem, i keep beaches and rivers treasures I collect during the summer, so in cold months i can feel the summer again.

  4. Thanks Elizabeth. I’m with you there – although I tend to pick up stuff in all weathers and at any time of year. Big smiles.
