Frolic

It’s amazing how much a sky – and a beach –

Can change in the space of a day or two:

From cloudy drama

Footprints

To the joyfulness

Of dogs frolicking

In a glorious sunset.

Frolic

  6. Lovely as always! The sky is dramatic and always changing and the footsteps we leave on the beach floor washed away by the sea for a fresh start each new day.
