The Road Home is Paved With Shells

Silk sands ripple through my toes
like smooth ribbons thoughtfully

weaving around an ornate corsage.
There’s a comfort in the dense

and salty wind that beckons
hair away from the shoulders —

the tide as it slowly wages in
and bubbles as it leaves.

I pick up a shell where
I can hear the whispers of home.

Take me back please,
take me back to the sea.
