  It was quiet.
Only the call
Of the seagulls
And the crashing
Of the waves
Interrupted the silence

The cool sand felt
Wonderful beneath
His bare feet. The
Wind blew back his
Hair, long in need
Of a haircut.

Later, when the sun
Had come out and the
Mists had melted
Away, his children
Would come and their
Cries of joy would
Fill the air.

But for now it was quiet
Just him and the seagulls
And the waves. Not kids,
No toys, no screams.
Just Peace and Quiet.
