Sea Glass

Broken glass.  

Strollers pluck 

rounded edges

half buried in surf.


Rumbling earth.

Tumbling waves.

Seeds wash away

Lost at sea.


Words dig chasms.

Hearts probe 

For memories of love.

Calm moments holding, holding.


Family photos,

Grade-school poses,

Longing to rock and embrace

Forever. Amen. 


Tenderness once whole

Splinters to recesses.

Goodbye –

Solitude remains.   


Ragged edges soothed

by whispered psalms –

Mantras of hope

cllimb the final stairs. 


Resilient sea glass

Gleam in dirt, sand –

Glint hope, beauty, Light, love –

the palm of God’s hand.   


Beaches disclose

Smooth, caressed treasures

Weathered, lovely, mighty,

Reminders on the windowsill.
