Sea pebbles

August 29, 2011 § 1 Comment


All the seas work hard to please Neptune. They take large rocks and polish them for years, decades, sometimes centuries, to make shiny round pebbles of different colors and shapes. They deposit these treasures on the beach sand as a gift from Neptune to those who venerate the majesty of the oceans. When beach goers ignore these offerings, Neptune goes into a rage and the seas shake with furious storms. When we are on the beach we always collect sea pebbles. Later, in the dark days of Winter, we touch them to remember the Summer warmth and to appease Neptune.

    so beautiful and true..I know I have never given Neptune any cause to rage at me…and today, as always, my carefully gathered treasures from many summers at the sea are around me ..reminders of tides and sunsets, and huge, hypnotic waves…
