Let me be like sea glass
Shattered free from what once made me whole
Let me be broken open without fear and fuss
Adrift from all I once called mine.
Trusting the ancient buoyancy of salt water
Surrendering to waves and rocks grinding at my edges
Let me lie hidden until serenely polished
To keep safe eager toes bounding through sun baked sand
Once found let me be a testament to resiliency
Whether collected in a jar or fashioned into art
Let the sun illuminating through me show
The only difference between garbage tossed
And sea glass sought
Is time spent in the sea

Thanks Joe. I miss our musical musings. Are you still writing songs?
