Broken pieces

Moon flickers off the hues of nature

pieces washed ashore from a thoughtless sea

I hold worn life in tired hands

smoothly stroking the remnants left behind

from anothers’ carelessly thrown away vessel

broken by a hundred storms

now safe at rest in a box tucked in deep.

My mind rests amongst the edges

no discernible cut to see,

worn smooth like a worried sandbar chafing

over and over again

tossed and turn by the whims of the waves

and I know I am like each one,

softened through time

no longer a semblance of a former self,

not so transparent

yet still allowing the light to shine through

like a stained glass soul

I sit amongst those of my kind

brought together to be here now

and I find the peace in the piece.

There is beauty in the brokenness of these souls,

each a story from somewhere

torn apart by time and space

yet still remaining whole

and still so very beautiful.


“I told you that we could fly, ’cause we all have wings but some of us don’t know why.” INXS playing on IHeart radio…inspiring the thoughts….and yes…I collect sea glass….very few to find these days due to plastics but I suppose that in itself is a good thing? Peace and blessings. K ❤

  6. Very neat… I was wondering what the pieces were. Washed ashore glass has a particular quality and beauty. And a minority amongst the plastic. Glass. Shark teeth? Sea shells maybe? What else?
    Enjoy the beach Kim.
