The Sun, Wind, Waves and Sand

big and fat with a floppy hat
obscuring squinty eyes
and a bulbous nose but not
the giant ears the sun is shining

unnoticed in big smears running
down his moley back un-rubbed
sunscreen the wind
is light and refreshing

ambling duck-footed
down the beach kneeling to inspect
something in the sand the sound
of waves is soothing

the belly folding many times
as he kneels the flabby chest
on display the sand
is soft and warming

and he came to this beach alone
and he laid out his towel alone
and now he is standing alone with
a spiral shell in his hand looking
out over the sparkling ocean

and God almighty,

what a Beautiful smile.
