A Grain Of Sand - Poem by Uloia Norris Moore

Upon a beach
must after sought
feet our toes
the fingers they

That which all
wish to walk
small grains of
do so talk

A pearl saith I
can so become
if the wise oyster
takes me in

The sun shinning
backs hot
into the sea
all run for comfort

Salty skin
fresh ocean
towel drapped
does make
all feel well

While foot print
in the sand
left I
when turning back
thundering of a wave
did I so hear

I glance back
ocean reclaimed
that which
was hers

    This is a strangely appealing piece - with its awkward, staccato rhythm and its warm recognizable images of the sea. Great title too. There is much depth beneath your waves. love, Allie xxxx (Report)Reply
