SIFTING REGRETS

SIFTING REGRETS

Bright coloured buckets— yellow, red and blue
Tiny holes underneath—sifting sand breezing through
Children on beaches, simple treasures of nature
Beautiful shells revealed simply-- effortless labour

Sifting circumspectly our lives with a fine-tooth comb
Examining—separating debris – our island home
Wasted years, accumulating material clutter
Relationships, precious moments - time closes the shutter
