Memories

I stood there.
Feeling grains of sand and their moistness, watching the red crab hasten it's way leaving a trail of it's footprints. As the salty waters dashed across my legs, wetting the borders of the blue colored dress, I remembered those evenings I had spent with them, my cousins way back decades ago.

Evenings which tied our palms together letting us hold each other to feel the vastness of the sea, running on the sand, jumping with the waves and chasing these red crabs that still ran.

Today, I was alone and so was the vastness, spreading tranquility, bringing back memories of times that have flown, along with the winds.
