WHAT A SEDUCTIVE SEA SHELL, I fell into its spell immediately..words just appeared!! Thanks, Tess, for Mag #69!!
Bobbing on a wave,
sand grits my teeth
as I climb to the apex of the crest
and fall into a moving odyssey.
Carried ashore by Homer's fate,
one cupping hand
will set me at his ear,
listen to my siren song,
and when my message
is cold and spent,
place me gently
on a grain of sand
for time to rub my skin to dust.
