The Broken Shell

Posted September 1, 2011 & filed under Notebook.

On the beach in the murky sand

Lays a cracked and chipped shell.

As the sun looked down on it,

A rainbow of neon colors glittered.

For one special moment, it showed

All of its beauty.

Next second, it was a shell again.

A cracked, chipped shell.
