Beauty in Death

 

——————-

Cool, carved mahogany

resting on a bone, white shore…

all the life….

long since run out…

dripping and burrowing

deep within the earth…

Leaving only cold

death behind…

Glancing skyward towards

a heaven long since forgotten…

and sighing in contentment

at the peace found..

on this empty stretch of sand…

down this desolate

lonely…

 solitary….

empty beach…
