Sea Glass

A Smooth Poem

Once, a bottle held a piece of paper.

Cast adrift on the waves for another to find,

A beautiful drawing, for a perfect stranger.

But the bottle's fate was not so kind.

Something happened, and the bottle broke.

A rock, a bird, or a two-great wave.

The paper and ink inside were soaked,

The message inside could not be saved.

By Torsten Dederichs on Unsplash

But the pieces of glass were flung through the waves

Drifting and dancing on current and tide.

Worn down by the sand and time and fishing boat graves

Until smooth ocean glass came to rest at the seaside.

By Kenrick Mills on Unsplash

A journey unmeasured, but that it was long

Finally ended in hands unknown

They did not know where the sea glass begun

But they would give it new life of it's own.
