Broken Shells

Source

Hugging my knees and digging my heels into the sand

I watch as the waves crash on the beach

And am reminded that you once called me a force of nature

Perhaps like a hurricane, tornado or earthquake

But I think not

I believe

I am

More like the gentle wave that rushes to the sandy beach

Sculpting the curve of the shoreline

A force of nature that seeks not to recklessly destroy

But rather to shape and polish the objects in my path

Like broken shells

Or hearts

Like mine

Welcome to hubpages. What a beautiful poem. It comes just at the right time for me. I can relate to this. The gentle wave "sculpting the curve of the shoreline." Beautiful image. I voted this up!

This poem expresses such a beautiful sentiment; to have a powerful effect in a slow, methodic, gentle way. Wonderful! Welcome to HubPages, Drjacki. I look forward to more from you.
