the shell

May 14, 2015

polishing the shell
to make it beautiful,
the shell that protects the softness
curled inside the shell

tapping on the shell
to ask for its secrets,
the secret softness
curled inside the shell

cracking the shell
the protective shell,
to expose the softness
curled inside the shell

opening the shell
the brittle shell
to find the secret softness
curled inside the shell

polishing the empty shell
to make it beautiful,
the softness vanished now
into its secrecy

the shell that protected
now decorates,
polished and beautiful
and hard and brittle
with a memory
of secret softness
