*Tek mi Picha*

by Sheryl Stark

Strong winds push against my face
Carrying mist of salty tales
Boats lay silent
Waiting for another day
As the trees dance
To the rhythm of the breeze
Water splashes around my feet
The picturesque land
Beckons me
To freeze in time
Mother Nature‘s design
Daughter, Daughter
Tek mi Picha
In the distance
The waves wrap
Around their tiny waists
As big grins
Shine from each small face
A carefree moment
I remember as a youth
Here they come running
As they make their debut
Pushing waves out of their way
As their voices strain
Against the musical waves
Miss, Miss
Tek mi Picha
They wear masks of
Black volcanic sand
As I freeze nature and man
The water laps at our feet
Reminding us of peace
When we walk the beach
Sea, wind, trees, and boys
Playing together as one
Unified and strong
With the mighty wind
They scream
With the mighty sea
They sing
Daughter, Daughter
Miss, Miss
Tek mi Picha
