Weekend Poem

A Star Turn

The gentle receding sea
has swirled a starfish
leaving it lying
on a pristine sand stage
a spun Catherine wheel
frozen in time.

The unseen hand
has carefully placed
two small shells
on top.

This little tableau
is stunning
in its simplicity
a magic moment
in the flotsam and jetsam
of our existence.

Joe Bell

Take time to notice the little, special things around you this weekend.
