Patterns of Sand

Elaborate granular legends

Continuously reshaped

By elemental sculptors
Of dead fish

Bone and scale epitaph

That one day rolls back
To the sea from which it came

For my sweetie, who teasingly said I would write poetry about dead fish.

I see I've missed a ton and a half of striking images and poems. I didn't realize you were blogging again.

Thanks! I've not been very consistant with my blogging lately, so it's not surprising.
