~ Treasure Chest ~
Ribbed and smoothed, some shaped as the nautilus chamber,
seashells scattered chipped and shorn,
tiny shipwrecks all wave-tossed and thrown.
Laid barren on final sandy shores,
some whitish or darkish hues,
others too, glistening remnants of watery jewels.
Abalone, lavender flowing, mother of pearl
splayed wide open in final homage.
Thank you for visiting today. ~ terre

*Photo taken on 2006 trip to Hunting Island Beach, South Carolina, USA. a natural, maritime, forest beach that remains undeveloped. This S.C. State Park is a tidal island landscape that is always changing as it is impacted heavily by weather. It is one of my absolute favorite places to visit.
