    So many grains of sand, here before us all
    relaxation and comfort at our beck and call
    unique people gather, all to share the light
    making melodious music throughout the night
    drums and art, art and drums
    sun to set to rising sun
    sound uniting this world apart
    pushing shallow differences to the rear of our hearts
    several feet away lay the shops and their owners
    many trinkets to view, every texture and color
    every design, every line, hundreds of beads intertwined
    thousand of people, no lines, just the freeing of minds
    it's amazing how some place so simple and sweet
    ease the memories of world related dead-lines to meet
    to time-clocks to punch and traffic to curse
    what's the worst thing about the beach?
    Coming home is the worse

    there is no place I prefer to be,
    when I need to get away from
    the world...

    and yes the worst and only difficult part...is leaving

    Love the tranquility I find in this piece!
