The Shell And The Waves - Poem by Eman Elbadawi

I wondered
It's just one word
That summoned me
All that distance
And ordered
All the waves
That carried me
Without hesitance
On the shore
One word
Gave me
My existence
One word
I heard
The shell opened
No resistance
The secret
The shell closed
And the waves carried
A remembrance
No wonder
One word
The whole world
For instance!
