Treasure Island

Seashell Lost


Under the low sinking sun, pink sky with dabs of blue, a shell of great value to me.
Mysterious, affluent, and more expressed than the shell beside.
Purple and gold in colour it’s rather rare.
I blink my eye and in a mere moment ’tis gone.
I lost it to a seagull that accidentally thought it was food.
I’m in erratic despair!

    This is well written. It expresses the strong respect most of mankind has for the ocean, and I love that appreciation for things loved and lost. (Report) Reply

    Awww Aziz come back and visit when you can.

    Sometimes the words just come to me and sometimes I need to find that little bit of inspiration. Penning poetry is very personal and spiritual.

    Thanks for the comments. (Report) Reply

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
