Summer Love on the Beach

salty surf trickles
among pebbles in the sand
caressing hot skin
orchestra of crashing waves
tinged with sunset’s afterglow

My response to Carpe Diem #1696 Beach Love

In today’s Summer Love episode, the challenge is to create Tanka (only tanka) on the theme of Beach Love and try to bring in a sexual, sensual or erotic feeling.

  1. I’ve only been to the beach once in my life. I learned that it’s best to wear a one-piece suit after I stood up and my draws dropped to my ankles.
    I also ended up with sun poisoning which left my shoulders and upper chest covered with tiny blisters. It itched like anything!
