a poem by Clara Renner, ’24

Stepping into the warm sun.
My feet warmed by the soft sand beneath them.
The light wind blowing my long hair.
My sunglasses shading my eyes from the bright sunlight.
The smell of the salty ocean and fresh cinnamon churros on the pier.
My feet washed by the waves of the pleasantly warm crisp blue ocean.
The green palm tree’s leaves gently swaying in the calm wind.
Jumping into the refreshing pool with my brother.
Slowly melting in the toasty hot tub.
Going out for delectable ice cream after an event filled day with my family.
Being in California.
At last.
