PROMPT:  Everyone ______

 

EVERYONE COLLECTS SHELLS…sometime
Toes sink into hot sand
Baked by the sun
Shell seekers
A chipped sand dollar
Grains of pink sand between fingers
Hot and scratchy
Sweat roles down into eyes
Seeking shells no easy task

Tiny shells upon my palm
Count them
One by one
A fan
A trumpet
A curlicue
Pink, rose, orange and white

Looking over
The sandy beach
Waves roll in
Wash the shore
One more shell
Completes the collection
