Alki Beach Treats
Catch the breeze, salty air, long ago I was there, daily.
Walks with friends, sit awhile, cop a smile, peace lives next door.
Ignore the crowds, beach ball and games, they have no shame.
Pebbles and seaweed, shells and driftwood, the treasures so good, so true.
Fish and chips, cookies and coffee, cement board walk to enjoy, pleasures galore.
Senses are heightened, his hand in hers, true love still stirs.
Even after fifty years, he is hers.
– Mary-Jeanne Smith
Alki Beach is in West Seattle in Washington State. I visited it all through my childhood. I especially have fond memories of spending time there with my grandparents.
