I'm happy to say I actually like this one. And I hope you do to.

See Glass

One single shard of sea glass
Sits in the palm of hand
I can hear the waves in it
As they crash to meet the land

Its weary sand worn edges
Curve to meet my wrist
They grin into my skin
As I curl my hand to fist

I think I see my future
Beneath the gritty sheen
Which warps the lines and cracks
In a ragged, endless seam

Splintered green and blue and grey
Twist together in the light
Tar black sea weed and sea foam
Clash in flawless spite

One single shard of sea glass
Sits in the palm of hand
But when I take it to my lips
I find it tastes really rather bland.

Hello, Octave~
This is Amaryllis, from the other poetry boards.. now I`m no teenager (it`s been many a moon since I saw anything-teen! heh).. but I happened to pop over here, and read this lovely gem, and had to comment!  
This is very good writing- I see such talent;  a natural ear for the euphony of words.. such music, and you have chosen  fresh, engaging imagery as well.  
Great job here.. and I surely hope you continue writing.. it is your gift!

Wow, I love it! It just flowed off my lips with ease and then left me speechless! Amazing work!

"When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car"

Thank you, both of you, very much! (: I was rather pleased with this one, I have to admit.
