Love letters scavenged in sand

Her wind blown hair whispers
     he tossed this branch
     far across the ocean
     praying she would hear his thoughts
     from another dimension

Her salty fingers tingle
     he caressed the roundness
     of these weathered rocks
     wishing she could feel its smoothness
     and embrace his touch

Her sunburnt eyes perceive
     he weighed woven nets
     with these forgotten glass orbs
     promising to end his journeys
     with abundance restored

Her sandy feet discern
     he paused to examine
     remnants of starfish and urchins
     regretting life’s journeys
     on divergent oceans

She assembles these icons
    on an altar to a memory
    that ebbs and flows
    through letters she conjures
    from a celestial shore
