I bounce upon a sandy shore
Above the earth, towards heavens door
Through salty air and swollen waves,
Is how I spend my summer days.

The beach is where my life begins
As I dance upon the wind,
From here to there in someone’s hand
To touch, to feel, the cool wet sand

A warming sun caresses me
Inflates my insides heartily
I swell with pride, upon the tide
That drifts on out to sea

Then back again to dry safe land
To rest upon some warming sand
As sunshine turns to opal gray
Where sun and water closely lay.

Quickly as the nights about,
The fires light and stars come out
Beyond the pit you cannot see,
But hear the sounds of waves and sea.

Laying just beyond the light
Right now, no longer taking flight
I know this day is at an end
Until my playtime comes again.

Great imagery and a truly great poem of a favourite beach pastime - playing with a beach ball!!

This is delightful! It reminds me of Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Swing" as it brings to life so many happy memories! You take your readers right along with the bouncing ball and they feel such joy! Well done!

This is so light and playful! Thank you for making me want to dance to the cadence of the rhyme. :-)

This is cute. I didn't read the title first so was trying to figure out what the poem was about as I read. Made it more of a game. Too fun! And yes, I guessed beach ball... it was either that or a pelican with gas. rofl! ;-)
