Pearly Shells

Pearly shells,

shining in the sun,

the melodies of the sea –

linger in each one.

Footprints in the sand,

washed away by the waves,

as the sea sparkles,

dancing along the shore,

waving to the seagulls –

as they fly high above.


Came dark stormy clouds,

that hid the sun,

choppy blue waters –

now silvery gray.

Pearly shells along the shore,

no longer gleaming,

the saddest memories come –

as tears down my cheeks are streaming.


Now dancing in the rain,

along the seashore,

with your image so clear in my mind –

I can feel your hands holding mine.

Remembering the pearly shell necklace,

you once gave me.

Together beneath stormy skies,

the sea breezes whisper of your love,

as sadness now overwhelms –

wishing for the sun to shine again.


As the rainbow appears,

sun rays dancing upon the water,

pearly shells once again gleaming,

cries from the gulls flying through the skies –

send me many loving greetings.

As  I go dancing along,

many loving thoughts elate me.

Reminding me of a time,

when there was you

and there was me,

together we would sing –

to the music of pearly shells.

    Lovely verse, Rasma. The loss of a loved one brings times of nostalgia both joyous and sad. You have a loving soul.

    I love the imagery of the seashells. I love seashells and beaches and love stories told about walking on the sands. Thank you Rasma. Well crafted and a joy to read. Jamie
