Had Hoped to Find

Had Hoped to Find

Was sorting out and it was hard to tell
Which one would be my favorite seashell 
Each did consistently, constantly, compare
All lying by beach shore here and there.

Some were perfectly round and others odd
Which were all made by our great God
All of various colors and many designs;
Several with spiral as well as curvy lines.

Through shells started to separate and strain
While ocean waves would play a sweet refrain
Asking me why I have become a big creep
And all of God's precious shells trying to keep.

In each new day mornings will always break
So I said to myself for goodness sake
It will be best if lovely shells leave behind
So others can look for and hope to find.

    Such a lovely read, I so enjoyed every line of it. Flowing spiritual vision and I could hear and smell the sea and see the shells as if I was there. Thank you for sharing, such sweet enjoyment....Sharon G.
