Sun and Paradise Blue Sky

Paradise Blue sky clear of clouds. Shining sun, brilliantly bright. Whispers of wind. Salty scent of the sea. Soft sand spread beneath my feet. My feet slightly slip and slide as I walk to one of the lounge chairs. My stuff is set on the sand. My sundress is stripped. My body is bare besides a bikini. I sit down and take in the view. Children playing in the sand. People splashing around in the water.

Waves licking the sand as they dance. The water is a beautiful turquoise color, but becomes bluer as I look into the distance. It’s a spectacular scene. I can hear the sea swish soothingly. Sounds of laughter and elation fill the air. Summery scents of sunscreen and suntan lotion float amidst. I smile and lay down on the chair. I close my eyes. Put my airbeds in. And I let the worries drive out of my system. I can feel the warmth of the sun as It caresses my skin.

Turning my skin from pale as snow to sun-kissed. This is as peaceful as paradise. So serene. So calm. This is ultimate tranquility. I am a leaf drifting from a tree. So relaxed. So carefree. I am free of concerns. Free of worries. Free of stress. Just free. Oh, Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas. Where have you been all my life? I want you to know that it is such a luxury. Such a privilege. Such an amenity. To be In held In your arms right now.
