sea shell

sea shell

 

i remember i was a sea shell

    lying in the sand

 

i look to the waves with anticipation

    wanting to be swallowed up, carried away

 

i saw the waves laughing, taunting me

    this will always be my resting place…

 

a small hand picks me up and tosses me

    now that i am out here riding the sea

 

i wonder where i will end up this time

    thunder and torment throw me higher on the sand

 

tiny feet run towards me

    gripped tight in his hand, he rushes to the very edge

 

with all his might, hurls me

    this time i do not surface

 

my small friend, does he wonder

    what happened to me
