White Sand

by Connie James

We walked through white sand
my lover and I on bare feet.
Silken were our arms when
locked together.

Clear were our smiles for
lilies grow in our hearts.

Pure smooth stones we found
and joy is our only message.

No secrets can be found; as the
sun does shine on our minds.
With cooperation do we relate
and love is breathing on that
white sand, while we hold
the blue and green small smooth stones.
