A pebble …

A pebble

glistening on the shore

arrests my eye and makes me think

why one sea-smoothed polished stone

can make me feel less alone

in this universe of life.

Perhaps in the randomness of tide and fate combined

we share a moment out of time –

It sees the sun …

and I,

the subtle play of light on agate.

    Hello Marya,

    Perhaps, like the one who “can make me feel less alone/ in this universe of life,” you too have been shaped by time and tide to better fit into the sometimes wayward motions and storms of life. Maybe that’s why you seem to be as steady as a rock! 🙂
