Sea Glass

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
