AW Blog Chain – Drabble Edition

Before I started the Drabble Day Challenge last Tuesday, I had actually suggested drabbles on the Absolute Write Water Cooler forums for the November blog chain. Since a bunch of us are NaNoing but wanted to do the blog chain, drabbles are perfect.
So now my turn has come to post for a blog chain. If you are an AWers, you can join the chain on the forums. Whether you’re an AWer or not, you can participate to this special edition of the Drabble Day by either posting your drabble in the comment or posting a link to your drabble.

The one word prompt for today’s hundred word story is: Beach!

                                

Beach

The horizon formed an unbroken line in shades of blue. The color radiated with hot overlays where the setting sun spread its rays. Before that distant line, blue deepened, truer to the distance of the bed beneath it. When a wave rode high enough, the sun shone through, making the water turquoise. Almost green.
The ensemble described perfection in a way words or images could never capture. Yet, I couldn’t bring myself to appreciate it as behind the beauty slumbered a menace I tasted every minute.
Another wave washed over me. Hanging to my plank, I prayed for the beach.
