Seldom do we have such a perfect match of a picture and a poem, but here is a sunrise captured in words and graphics created by Holicong students.
Grainy sand clinging to my feet,Waves lightly coat my toes like a watercolor painting.
Crystal-clear tumbling waves,Towels whipping in the wind,
Beach toys sprinkled across the sand like crayons after a kid has scribbled with them.
Seagulls screeching in search of food,
The smell of salty sea water,Tall dune weeds sprout from the ground like brushes from a cup.
Colorful umbrellas providing shade,
Glasses protecting my eyes from the sun,Pinching lotion from a bottle like trying to get the last few drops of paint.
Storm cloud-grey fish swim about,
Rock barriers between sections of beach,Shells scattered across the sand like splatters on a canvas.
The beautiful Sea Isle, New Jersey.
