Burn

crossing
the sea
sizzling hot sand

fiery
coarse sand
my feet burn

running
with everything
envision salty shores

emerse
singed soles
ignite cool waters

close
my eyes
swelling surf magnified

gentle
soothing breeze
heals the burn

    There’s a great progression of verbs here leading up to “soothing.” I can really feel it.

  2. i’ve always loved the feel of hot sand on the soles of my feet, then running towards the water to cool it off! these brought back so many memories of growing up in an island.

    my favorite image: “close / my eyes / swelling surf magnified”. standing in the water with eyes closed does magnify the the other senses — moving surf all around you, never knowing when the next wave will come.

writing is everything...
