The atmosphere along a coast
often enough includes a toast
on life in general and pleasure
to enjoy health and fun in measure.
A glass of wine can round off days
when their memory still stays.
You calmly look at rolling seas
and smell the salt in the soft breeze.
And slowly thoughts begin to wander
you feel the now – no time to squander.
Whatever happened is now past.
What you decide to do will last.
