Just A Shell Story

Just A Shell Story

written by: Emalisa Rose

 

bipartisan winds
confiscate all we’d
collected; our bouquet of
shells reconnects with the
waves that delivered them

but seas never sleep,
even when moons shut
their eyes to the seeking
ones..stirring that edge

that we dawdle for purely
the need of the self
affirmation, if but in the gift
of a rippled edged cockleshell.
