Pale Pink Seashells



quietly radiant...her slight figure
stepped swiftly though the cold sand
pausing now and again ever looking
for pale pink seashells that hugged
the azure shoreline...
she slowly walked the tides
each footstep erased with the ocean's pull
gone forever from time and memory

My favorite lines:

Melanie, FYI, I'm a copy editor, and there is a typo here. It's "ocean's" in the last line. Just fix that and it will be perfect. Love your work! Amy
