The Tide of Time

Washed
up
on the
shore

broken
by
the
ocean's
roar

waiting
at
the
foot
of
heavens
door

I
touch
her
fading
beauty
with
my
trembling
hand

a
broken
shell
lying
in
the
burning
sand

~~~

    This is beautiful, Elaine, both in its initial simplicity, and also if intended as a metaphor. A poem after my heart! hugs // paul
