shell

Detail of a shell from “Seaside Sampler” original design by Magie Hollingworth for Erhman Tapestry and stitched with adaptations by Meredith Eliassen.

A shell winks at me from the sand.

I stoop and pick it up.

I put it to my ear and hear echoes from the sea.

My heart is light.

I continue down the beach enjoying my newfound treasure.

I stop.

 

I put the shell to my ear again and hear echoes from the sea.

I am comforted by its rhythm.

Some shellfish change their shells like we change houses

 

I toss the shell back into the sea… surrendering my newfound treasure.

The waves swallow it.

I let go…
