Upon The Tide Washed Sand

Upon the tide-washed sands laid a spiral sea shell

Polished marbled wall, antique yet natural made art

Fragile and beautiful; magnificent sounds

Sound toss delicately guided to and fro

Hum, whirl wind, waves, seal cries

Whales’ sounds circulate under deep sea

Melody natural made; echo trapped sounds

Waves played among this whirl inner shell

Echoing the rhythm of ocean heart

UP! A beautiful poem and the illustrations are well-matched to it. One suggestion: In the title and the first verse I think you mean to say tide).

Beautiful poem, and lovely pictures. I'd love to take a trip to a deserted tropical beach, sheer bliss.

Voted up and beautiful. Wonderful memories of walks on the beach and I remember once finding a seashell with a hole at the top which I wore for awhile on a chain. Thank you for taking me there.

Lovely poem and gorgeous pictures. You are very prolific and have written a "lot" of poems. I mostly write prose - history in fact - and every once in a while a poem. :)
