First Lullabye


First Lullabye

In late afternoon
the sea breathes
coolness
onto the shore.

Lying on a towel
I feel the sand
still glowing
with the memory
of the day’s hottest sun.

The beach hushes
at this time of day,
and it sounds like the
world’s first lullaby:
the low throaty waves,
salty breeze in my ears,
and Mom humming.
