The ocean wants to play.
We’ve ignored each other for hours, now the ocean wants to play.
The waves are teasing me, tossing its foam at my feet.
Here I am, come play with me.
It calls loudly, gets distracted, and then comes back to me.
It offers up some shiny shells. Want to play?
Tosses up some jellyfish.
I move my chair back.
I’m going to take your sandals. Is that your phone?
It throws wave temper tantrums.
Look at me! I’m strong. See me make a muscle.
Whee! as it chases after seagulls.
Ready or not, here I come it says to me.
It tries to distract me. Look, is that a dolphin?
Wait! Where are you going?
Please come in and play with me.
