A lost seashell

pale and translucent

half hidden in sand!

I hold the seashell up to my ear

Till I hear and feel

the call of the deep,

the song of the sea,

The yearning!

Liquid fingers touch

the brooding silence,

The last- heard song

hides in meandering echoes.

And the unfathomable Blue

rises and falls within the shell.

Why so? Who knows the Secret?

The Waves return,

the roar rolls against the shore

“Let one great longing

meet another” ..

And the rising waves

claim the shell again!
