Early Autumn Sunbathing

The Autumn sun caresses her skin
in waves of flirtatious heat.
She finds it to be more sensual
and alluring than the Summer passion.

the cool ocean breeze flutters
around my sun burned ears
bringing the sound
of children’s playful laughter closer
then pushing it slowly afar
as if
an accordion being played skillfully
by the frothy waves
