#17 If only

S.O.L #17 out of 31

If only.....
I slowly strolled on the sandy beach
by myself, all alone
Far, far away 
from the chaos of home.

Embracing the sun’s arms
wrapped around me.
Deep blue ocean
as far as I can see

Collecting the sounds...waves lapping
seagulls flapping.

Breathing in the salty sea air
letting the wind gently touch my hair

Slowly, I reluctantly open my eyes……..

And finishing making dinner.


  1. This is lovely. I dream of traveling and being ocean side as I get ready to clean a bathroom. :) Oh, the glamorous life we lead!

  2. I love the yearning for a relaxing environment away from all of the obligations we face daily. The sensory details are so spot on for me as I want to go there too. Thank you for taking me a way for a minute. Reading this was a brain break for me ❤️

  3. Heehee. You had me with you for a minute. Love the ending!! Reality bites...

  4. I love how you wrote real it was...

  5. What a beautiful mental break! I was "there" with you!
