My Beach Stands Where

Thoughtfully, I placed shells turned up

on the beach around me in a spiral

that there may be an indirect path to

my center, where I shine.

.

My light is inclusive, and it has bathed

many, if not for a passing moment.

There is one who stands with me

so much more than a moon.

.

My beach stands where two suns shine.

.

Some will wonder at the brightness,

others hiding from the burn of two

who meld close as one. Arguably,

the moon will shine brighter for it.

.

Everything; shells, sand, sea foam

will look different, but really are

now simply seen in a different light.

I laid down those shells for a different way…

.

My beach stands where two suns shine

.
