Beach day

Day at the Beach
Onto the sand our toes burned with each step
Under umbrellas people dozed off from the heat
Beside us people ate
Along the shore people ran
Behind me were three giggling friends
Around the corner we waved away seagulls
Above us was the bright sun
Across were the crashing waves
Past us were little kids digging
Near were friends laughing
About to faint from the heat we headed to the shore
We swam.

  1. Nicely done, Molly. Just a note, though: some of your lines were sentences, not simply prepositional phrases. For example: “Along the shore people ran.” In that line, “along the shore” is a prepositional phrase; while “people ran” is a subject and verb.
