Getting my feet wet

Dipping my toes in…

Always tentative and somewhat nervous – though of what I have no idea
Crashing in, it swirls around my ankles
Glistening bubbles chattering away at my toes
A momentary gasp. Cold!
But then the ocean and my feet part company
And we are left on the sand…
Damp and invigorated.
I step closer to the deep
Then step back again
Waiting … waiting…
Waiting for the next wave

  3. Oh Francesca, What a lovely post. Yours always are, but some go right to my water/sea/beach-loving soul as this one certainly did.
