Empty Shells

The sea waves washing empty shells clean. Laid in the sand, just where each should be. The being gone from inside the shell, leaving colorful beauty behind. In life's waves we are born and we grow, only to die and be lain to rest. Our souls gone from this now worthless shell, leaving behind a unique story. Christopher Bunton For the "Parallelogram de Crystalline" Contest

wow, what a GREAT way you did the contest, comparing the empty shells to our bodies when our souls leave them. tHat was a great analogy to use for this contest. Wish I had thought of it. I have no idea how to do this contest!
