Like Sea Glass #Poetry

Dark like the depths

of the unknown

Rocking to the rhythm

of a long lost lullaby

an incoming memory

washed in with the tide

and I held it and turned

it like brilliant

bits and fragments

of sky blue and turquoise

sea glass in my mind

before my heart

even remembered

her voice,

how she hummed like

an angel on a breeze

and the songs

that she once sang to me

All at once the wicker crackled

& the carrier rocked

Her bare feet

half sunken – sifted

and the horizon

Tilted slowly as though

the hands of time

has forever shifted-

And the pale waves

rolled on and rose higher

as if to greet us once again

As we knelt down to meet the dawn.
