On the beach

by poetrydiary

Seeing you there, alone,
pebbles scattering
on the beach. They don’t care;
flying discretely
through the air.

Your hair shatters
in wilder shards;
chasing the wind – who knows where?

But life is yours;
insisting on wholeness,
against the maelstrom, and despair;
you hold the scene.
