Collections of a Life

traipsing along the shores

lapping edges of a life

she collects

souls’ vestiges

shimmering shards

salted among

flotsam and jetsam

eddying in surf’s

ebb and flow

she is pulled

by sparkling hues

singing kaleidoscopic

mermaid refrains


jagged or tumbled smooth

slosh- suck at heartstrings

filling sandy pockets

she embraces

all reverently

even those that wriggle

frenetic and foaming

retreat to murky depths
