Stunning truths.

This is just like the image of the shell, perfect and thought-provoking.

Sioux said...

"Sound of the old tides." What a marvelous phrase.

And "empty nest." What a cool, brilliant way of looking at that shell, as well as other things.

Tess Kincaid said...

Ah, yes. The empty nest. I know it well.

Grammy said...

This is an elegant haiku. So appropriate for this elegantly perfect, yet empty, little shell.

This is like a piece of music. For violin, I think, because the violin can reach up and out and ebb and flow like the tide. Beautiful.
