Pebbles

Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge #35 ,including the above photo prompt, inspired this poem:

Polished pebbles glimmer by the shore,

Sparkling wet sand reflects the sun,

Glistening gems I yearn to store,

Fill my emptiness before day is done.

.

Sparkling wet sand reflects the sun,

Brown yellow red, russet and crystal,

Fill my emptiness before day is done,

Aching for beauty true and simple.

.

Brown yellow red, russet and crystal,

Veins of quartz, obsidian and slate,

Aching for beauty true and simple,

I look down and step with measured gait.

.

Veins of quartz, obsidian and slate,

Under a clear blue sky on summer’s day,

I look down and step with measured gait,

Wondrous moments that soon will fray.

.

Under a clear blue sky on summer’s day,

Polished pebbles glimmer by the shore,

Wondrous moments that soon will fray,

Glistening gems I yearn to store.
