A Kid Again at Sumner Beach

Emma , Year 7

Seagulls swoop in
and nip the last chip
your dad shoos it away

Dodging sandcastles
and a kids meltdown
as you run to the water

Jumping over breaking waves
people fall
secretly sniggering

Sand glittering
people sadly littering

Ocean swaying
like flowers in the wind

Blue ocean dazzling
drawing me in
calling me

Running into the water
smiling and thrashing your arms
waves wash over you
you’re a kid again
