By the water

She sat by the water, 
Listening to the wind speak through the waves. 
It’s soothing touch cooling down the grasp of the burning sun. 
A tiny boat carries a family across the canal, 
As the children wave to the strangers they pass. 
She waves back, 
Before laying down on her purple towel. 
Finally, the weather Gods had blessed her
with the sun she prayed for all summer.
