Phillip Coffey - Sun on the Nose

SUN ON THE NOSE By Phillip Coffey
White caps break the innocence of the placid, vast sea.
Tourist welcoming 'buckling' of his statue along each course
Taken, sand between the toes, not fully understanding
The redness captured from the Sun on the tip of the nose.

Laughs and smiles of many of the cheerful youth playing
On my long-held memories though not very well stated
Not so long before today - the treasures I have not sought
Pleasures not necessarily bought - further thoughts not lending.
