Golden sands lay under foot
Picking up a pebble
To skim across tranquil waters
The sun catches a shimmer
In my eye and carries my mind
To another world

A place of beauty
Where light of day reflects
A world of coral blue and sea green
Signs of life, multicoloured
Smothered in a breath of the earth
Swimming tenderly

Creatures gentle essence
Only imaginary in our world
New life, a wild aquarium
Oblivious to the dreamy surroundings
Dreamt of my many
In an almost parallel world

Shared universe, and earth
The hands of the ocean
Move the soothed families on
Humming a gentle lullaby of hope
Calming the frantic energy from above
Cooling the heat from below

Seeing distant life become familiar
The serene fingertips and voice
Of the liquid diamond paradise
Lift me with a slight modest force
Spinning, up, up, and away
Flying on the wings of the air

Feeling the breeze of the evening
Through my softened hair
The sun sets over the horizon
The golden sand flows below
The ice blue ocean bids farewell
Skimming the pebble, I make my way home
