Day 12: Objects

Image result for sea glass

Today's prompt is to write about either a dull thing or a significant object that we own.

Sea Glass

This piece of sea glass I found
when you died, its opaque blue-green
the colour of trapped light,
is ordinary, extraordinary.

An artefact from faraway, 
a message from the deep.
Solidified lament I keep 
as talisman, smooth soother 

for the sharpness of grief. 
Polished by sand and waves, grit and tears, 
the lap of days, months, years...
makes me wonder

will the edges of sorrow blunt too
into something beautiful?
Something to carry as treasure, 
a pocket pebble-sized thought -

gift from an ocean of love
