A Glimpse in Time
A walk along a sandy beach
with footprints of every size.
The waves move forth to catch the prints,
and bring them back in time.
Odd little pieces of driftwood,
and colored nuggets of glass.
Contribute to my understanding,
through nature’s casual past.
Every granule of sandy beach,
represents a whole of life.
A shell, a bottle, a piece of rock,
or a plank from a ship in plight.
A heart-shaped stone so smooth and weathered,
Can measure the ocean’s caress.
Green seaweed hangs upon the rocks,
As a symbol of duress.
The tide pool is playground,
for crabs and starfish too.
The periwinkles stick around,
to keep the company true.
Nature has its beauty,
in every glimpse you take,
the sea, the shore, the sandy beach,
It gives you inner strength.
