SeaShell

This is today.

I went on a seashell walk.

I walked and I looked for seashells.

At times I walked on seashells.

This is the first seashell I found.

I started finding seashells in the sand.

Some of them were broken shells or parts of shells.

Some of them were filled with sand.

Some of them had been coloured by their time in the sea.

Some of them were the colour of the sea.

Some of them were open and smiled up at the sun.

Some of them were alabaster angel-wings.

Some of them were half-full and some were half-empty.

Some of them didn’t look much like seashells any more.

Some of them had a sunset in them.

Some of them were a little open but a little shy.

Some of them looked like a handbag filled with grains of sand.

Some of them were defensive but beautiful.

Some of them showed me their patterns.

Some of them looked like a kilt.

Some of them looked like a pleated plaid, a pointy skirt.

Some of them looked like the rings inside a tree.

Some of them looked like a drawing of a seashell.

Some of them looked like they had been carved by hand.

Some of them looked like a pimple.

Some of them looked like a sore.

Some of them were impostor seashells.

This “seashell” is the skeleton of a seagull, half-buried on the beach.

Some of them had a spiral of silver.

Some of them had a hole in the top.

Some of them showed their patterned plumage like an exotic bird.

Some of them showed their plain underside.

Some of them were almost unnoticeable next to other seastuff.

IMG_4262

Some of them were disguised as stones.

Some of them were traced with barnacles.

IMG_4263

Some of them were an O.

Some seashells provided a shelter for small red sandstone.

Some of them had a devouring mouth.

Some of the seashells were looking back at me.

IMG_4264

Some seashells were broken and mixed in with stones, shingle and rock.

Some of the broken seashells looked as though they might have been beautiful.

IMG_4265

Some of the seashells played hide and seek in the stones.
