Along the summer shore I found a shell.
Its intricate spiral was truly amazing.
At that time the sun was low.
I saw the sky glow with a beautiful shade.
Today, each moment passed too quickly.
Looking down again and found a colorful pebble.
It caught my eye with its contrast with the sand.
That evening I met a friend on the beach.
I noticed the fading light accent her hair.
Whenever I see her, my peace grows stronger.
Whenever she is near, I feel the rain flee the sky.
