Sea Shells

Written by: Dane Ann Smith-Johnsen

Rinsed aground.
Recording existence.
Abandoned dwellings wait to be found.

Each new tide 
Decorates the seashore –
Leaving remnants of moments in time.

Dawn awakens.
Sunlight sparkling the sand –
A woman strolls, collecting seashells.

Her thoughts soar.
Oh sweet creative mind!
Histories preserved in jewelry.
