Beautiful Temptation - Succinctly Yours Week 8

We ventured out onto the beach at dawn
Armed with camera and journal
The crisp morning air has a bite to it
We bundle against the elements and we take just a few
short moments to enjoy the scene before us
Just a brief time is all we get even as the beauty
tempts us to become part of the scene.
Yet we know that anything more and
the opportunity will pass and the chance lost
The lighting is just right as the tide recedes
exposing the rock formations and other
life left behind to fend for itself.
The sky begins changing from pink to blue
The peaks on the waves create a foam
as they crash back to the water.
God’s magnificence cannot escape recognition
I am incredibly grateful to share it with
someone I cannot imagine living without.

Challenge: Use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words
Include word of the week – tempt.
