A delicate fan somersaults in the sand
crashing and curling with the waves
to slide home on bubbling foam and deliver itself
at my freshly coral-painted toenails.
I add the shell to our plastic bucket of dreams
careful not to chip the memories.
While the setting sun descends with a smile
reflection winking for endless miles
I pull the seaweed from your hair
we buy matching dolphin rings on the pier.
NaPoWriMo Day 7 – Write a fortuitous poem.
Poetic Asides was similar – write a discovery poem.
I try to get these in on time, at least before midnight, but I’m always late.
