La Coquille

22nd May, 10:10

For this week’s post I thought I’d share a poem I worked on for a piece I completed last year. At the moment I’m sharing short stories or poems once every 3-4 weeks; how are you guys finding this? Would you like to see more creative work? Or less? Let me know in the comments below!

La Coquille

Though we’d brought the blanket,
the sand was inevitable;
making its way into
creases of skin,
weaving itself between
strands of damp hair.
Uncomfortable, though not
uncomforting
to feel its grainy presence.
It kept us in the moment;
the moment I
reached out, to clasp
your hand in mine,
but instead of meeting flesh,
my fingers encased a shell;
smooth and solid, a welcome
surprise. Slipped into my pocket,
there it remained. A memoire
of the beach. A memoire of
you.
