I Share My Joy

I found a small stone on the beach.
The azure color caught my eye.
I picked it up and felt sharp edges.
I turned it over and saw a sparkle.

I am grateful for that walk on the sand.
The dark sky threatened a storm,
The calm waves brought a peace.
As they collapsed, I heard their sighs.

Now I bring with me a serenity.
The small stone brings that moment back.
I want to show the pebble to a friend.
I want to share my joy today.
