Cobbled street photo streetPuertoNuevo_zps796260d6.jpg
Puerto Nuevo, a fishing village south of Tijuana in Baja California Norte, México

Little grains of beach sand
Scattered on the street;
Little grains of beach sand—
Watch your tender feet!
There among the cobbles
Lie the prickly grains,
Guaranteed to give you
Aches and bitter pains!

  1. I would have thought the cobbles would be more painful than the sand, except when it gets in the underware!

  2. I love to see cobblestone roads. I couldn’t tell you a place here in the states where there might be a cobblestone street. I do know where there are some old brick streets that haven’t been paved over. They too are quaint. Somehow if you are there lolling by the sea getting sand in your sandals and bathing suit I can’t quite feel sorry for you. 😉

  3. Don’t I know it! Wishes for smooth roads.

  4. Well, now, there’s a dose of reality! Guess that’s how thongs came into being!

  5. What a pretty place. But yes we better be careful where we step.

  6. ; a soul-in-sync feel!!
    And for me, the crunch of the sand under the naked feet with the swish of the sea is… pure bliss…:)

  7. Little grains of beach sand, how delightful!

  8. Oh it looks so beautiful there!!!!! It must get hot in the summer.

  9. Khaya Ronkainen

    Delightful piece with vivid images!

  10. Oh yes we better be careful and watch our step 🙂 Beautifully penned.

    🙂 Clever to write a warning that’s fun at the same time!

  12. Lovely rhyme, with a caution of even what is happening in the world today

    much love…
