Sea Glass

Half-buried in the coarse sand,

mostly submerged under foam,

a glimmer of pale, translucent green

catches the sun’s rays and it sparkles.

It used to be harsh, jagged,

but time and the water together

have taken their toll,

and what once was ugly,

a fragment of trash thrown out,

perhaps once part of a bottle

used to drown the sorrows

of some poor soul—that trash

has now smoothed, has turned

into a soft, delicate reminder

that beauty is in everything.
