Prompt: Put Into Words (Ekphrasis)

 

A Shell Collecting

She walks the beach collecting shells
devoid of the life they once held.
Trudging daily through ebbs and swells,
she walks the beach collecting shells-
catharsis for the pain that dwells
within her heart, who’s fire’s been quelled.
She walks the beach collecting shells,
devoid of the life she once held.

 **Poetic Bloomings has In-Form Wednesdays.  This week is Ekphrasis.
