Life's Treasure

Life's  Treasure

I had a little treasure, 
I lost it in the sea.
I placed my sorrow in a box, 
still I walked the beach.
I searched the clouds for picture shapes.
I talked with seagulls white.
I wandered without treasure,
Gathering seashells in my plight.
As I sifted through the sand
and gleaned along the rocks,
wrapped in seaweed like a bow,
was my little treasure box.
Where have you been my treasure,
waves swept you out to sea.
I prayed that maybe once again
Your return would be to me.

    A certain amount of sadness in this one like love loss or a part of oneself that go put on a shelf for one reason or another..Keep the creative pen flowing. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my work..Sara
