Sea Glass


a few good memories
scattered in the sands of time
magical glass blinking sunlight
broken pieces of emerald and aquamarine blue
I pick you up
the treasures of a child's heart
my heart
forever searching
on the beaches of my younger days
the Adriatic sea
when my father drove us there
and the world was whole
when the crash of the waves against the shore
was most immense to the senses
like the sound of the universe
the sound of God
white foam receding
scattering seashells and other treasures
in the wet sand
pieces of life
boiled up from the depths of the ocean
sea glass
broken pieces
more beautiful now
than the original object
they once formed
a menial bottle
a utility jar
now a jewel
because of its brokenness
polished
by the incessant waves
of time
the transmuter
of all things

O Love! thou makest all things even
