again--By Suzanne Webb--United States

again

empty that sea-glassed heart
broken into smithereens...again

empty it back to the sea
scatter that splintered heart
beyond the shore
and cast all the colored shards
of the heart
off the pier
then let the wind
reshape it...again

and have the sunbeams
ask the moonbeams
and the glittering starlights above
to remold that
shattered fragmented
sea-glassed heart

again

Suzanne Webb has spent a lifetime in public education enhancing learning through photography. She has dedicated her energy to the art of teaching and to showing children of all ages the wonder of creativity. A fortunate stroke of serendipity introduced her to "a timeless poet" named jani johe webster from Upstate New York. Her poetry influenced Suzanne's teaching practices and photography. Suzanne and jani collaborated together many times and created two books that are collections of photography and poetry: Whispers for a Magical Time and Ripples of Light. Suzanne resides in the historic seaport city of Salem, Massachusetts.
