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.
