Enduring Playful Love
As I strolled along the shore searching for
sea shells, memories came from the past.
Memories of a child again collecting
the shells running with shouts to Mother
"Save them, save them for me”.
Wondering where the sea shells have been
I peered deep within the ocean’s foam,
to retrieve the mystery of their journey.
Tumbling they swirl in the depths of the sea
washed cleverly clean by the salted water.
Answers of the question at hand
never seem to come because these are
the mysteries of the ocean’s world.
Answers that we long for leaves us
wondering, where do all the sea shells go?
My stroll is continued happily accepting
not all answers can come to me when expected.
Content to watch the waves caress the shore,
tossing the sea shells again and again
with an endearing playful love.
