Washed up

on sand,
countless grains,
millions of them,
carrying, covering, filing, smoothing
hard rock,
solid wood, 
big and small

washed up on the shore

find it, 
rolling in, then out again
neither here, nor there
just going with the flow,
low and high,
tumbling

washed up just like that

like sorrows, worries,
past and future,
even in the here and now
coming in, going out again

washed up by our consciousness 

let it go, let it go!
I hear them say, them waves,
crashing in my mind
moving, smoothing edges of those rocks
from long ago

washed up once again

maybe some day 
I'll pick them up
and put them in a jar
memories from beach days
once upon a summer
on lake Michigan

washed up 
love, tears, longing
for a breeze, some shade and sunshine
all year round

Artist! What more is there to say? Writer, a painter, drawer, scribbler, doodler, speaker, changer, changed, all at once, and so much more.
