Marble in the Sand

Marble in the Sand

sparkling marble embedded in the sand
a remnant perhaps from the sculptors of this land
holding the essence of centuries before
washed up from the treasure chest on Poseidon’s floor

a finger, a thumb nail – what could it have been?
smoothed now thru the ages from the storms of the Aegean
polished, a fragment of a creation long ago
crafted by a sculptor who wanted us to know

the essence of one’s beauty is not in our form
it is carried in the entirety of the potential with which we’re born
we’re masterpieces sculpted by the One who holds the key
to give us movement and feeling for who we want to be
