beach findings

Day one:
three pieces of sea glass;
time smooths rough edges.

Day two:
a stone with a hole;
dream of a future.

Day three:
pink and white cowries;
live in the moment.

Day four:
a lunch of cockles;
salt tears sting old wounds

Day five:
a white orb of quartz;
words come fast, unsought.

Day six:
a pair of otters;
wonder at it all.

Day seven:
swim in icy seas;
waves wash away hurt.
