Shell Gatherers (how I feel tonight)
Despite whatever differences we may have,
deep down inside there's a longing in each one of us
to be "picked"...
and to "pick"...
and then when we've picked another
and they've seen the truth of who we are
to be picked again
come what may...
to be the pretty shell someone sees among all the others
and catches up in their hand
and tucks into their pocket
and then holds
even after they've let go of everything else
when it feels like we have been discarded
we go away
today I rest in the sand
a shell among shells
waiting (but living)
hoping (but breathing)
lying back in the sand (and laughing into the sun)
but not hiding 'til then
in this moment
