In this Shell I hear

Seagulls circle,
wings beating
with wave’s thunder.
Echoes
in my heart.
Rhythm
on the rock
a conductor to a chorus
an old man fishing
sweet and ageless,
the world wide
sea side symphony
and a choir of far off
children’s voices.

Martie, this one sure brings a waterfall of emotion tumbling down my memory banks.

Hanging on my wall is a picture of a lithe little nymph ... seashell to her ear ... listening ... listening.
Hearing all she wants to hear.

I just caught the scent of sea air and heard the gentle sigh of waves - absolutely beautiful Martie!

There's something about the rhythms of the ocean that is mesmerizing, as is this poem

Yes, a choir of children's voices would be perfect for this setting. Beautiful.
