“DTD Shells”

IN THE May 29 ISSUE

FROM THE 2010 Articles,
andContributors,
andTerrific Tales
SECTIONS

by Janet Adams

3:42 a.m.
Shells lining the casementShells line the peeling casement
Where he waits in dreamless sleep.
Battered seams of wood
Hold memories
Of distant oceans
That Echo
Into delicate
Swirls
Of
Sand-etched
Pink
Sun-bleached
Ivory
Chalices.

In the waning dark
Echoes that whisper
With the wisdom
Of Time
To the fragile
Limbs clinging
To her gently
Rocking buoy –

Let go, let go let go —
The sea will carry you
Safely to my
Star stroked shore.

Janet Adams, English Teacher at Reedley High School, doesn’t simply teach but participates — as shown here — and is making a difference in her students lives, as profiled in our “Exceeding Expectations” series.
