The Joke’s On Me

I etched in sand with mother of pearl
and tethered it to my heart
it remained where I left it
by the edge of the sea
the winds blew over it
and the high tide didn’t reach
I woke this morning to the realisation
like a fool I left no message
just my heart
on a distant beach.

a dawn bird
