Susan Marshall

Here by the Sound
Quiet and peaceful
No birds sing
Nor waves crash
Still I’m drawn to this
Secretive, hidden
Unfolding beneath my eyes
As I follow the path
Once well-worn
Now covered in weeds
Bending below branches
I look beyond to see
The water
There is the treasure
I have been looking for
The beach
White sand
Smooth and silky
Reflecting the sun
Beckoning me there
To leave my footprints
