Seaside Poet - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

My songs are like small grains of sand
Tossed in the sea of days
Small pebbles from my shaky hand
Cast toward hidden cays

Each poem makes a tiny sound
As waters ebb and flow
Will they be heard or even found
I may not ever know

Yet just as turtles seek to nest
And seagulls need to soar
So I must toss my offered best
Till I can sing no more.
