jelly fish on the beach

Written by: Jerri Ward

the beach is full of so much beauty
walk along and you will see
shells of many kind, some broken
from  the strength of the waves
some who somehow survived their fury
but such beauty it carries
Yet unbeknownst to many is 
the jelly fish lying 
peacefully on the beach
it’s life is over, yet the
ability to sting still
lies somewhere within
for the curious who touch
it to be filled with the
sting of its poison 
even after death it still
has the ability to 
touch peoples lives
