It was a sunny day in August
I was clad in my multi coloured bikini
As we enjoyed the serene coolness of the beach
The glow from the golden sun permeates the day
There was a mass display of naked bodies wrapped up in tattoos
A blend of gorgeous mortals make mockery of their egos
Come let us swim! They bellowed one to another
The patterned rafters in colours of black, white and red
Caressed us as we sat in our summer flip flops
We listened to the whistling wind
And watched the roaring waves form hurdles in the sea
A blissful cosy day, I whispered to the gods
As we feasted on a variety of fruity fructose
Soaking the sun with us were other beach lovers
Everyone was amused by the comical sights painted at the beach
We perused one another as we picked pebbles and cowries
One moment of harmony, one moment of merry
But like the speed of light
The beach climaxed into a forlorn landscape
There was chaos as everyone scampered for safety
What’s with this whirlwind?
A fierce contention enveloped the wind and the sand
Horrendous art fit only for the desert
Pandemonium broke loose
A sudden fear gripped everyone
We ran helter-skelter
We bemoaned our fate
What in the world is happening?
Has the end visited the earth?
Are the gods of the sea angry?
Rhetoric’s are better left for a good platform
A sudden gush of fear over-shadowed us
People retired inwards in hurried steps
As the sky opened its mouth with rage
And in fierce fury, punched our bodies hard
The city gasped for breath underneath the crying sky
We must not be swallowed by a tumultuous storm
We raced in the rain soaked to the hilt
The sight of freedom consoled our knackered frames
As we reached for the car tucked between the bending trees
We leaped forward in flickered smiles
And inhaled safety into our lives
Nature played pranks on us, we enthused
With a sudden shift to our heavenly picnic.
