vivid images of a thousand Storms

This happened when I got a beautiful image of a seashell rising with water, tossed by the fierce waves of an ocean. Don’t know if I’ve done justice to the thought, but this is what I got down on paper.

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
Lao Tzu

Not any Seashell

But a Seashell,

With deep

Crevices and a

Hard, outer-shell.

A Seashell

With an empty

Song,

Vivid images of

A thousand

Storms.

A Seashell that has always

Played with high

Tides of Wild,

Fierce Oceans.

A Seashell carrying

A restless, indomitable

Spirit.

“There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
