Pebbles

I was looking for a picture of pebbles in a stream to illustrate a poem and found this beauty instead. Click on the picture for the full, glorious effect.

The sea has so many treasures,
Tossed carelessly on the shore,
Where we lie
High on the silver sand,
Dreaming of gold
And the electric dazzle
Of city lights.
A thousand hues,
Sea-polished,
Sun-caught glitter,
A precious pavement,
Beneath our feet,
We walk,
Tread,
Eyes on the horizon,
Marvelling at the blue,
Or closed,
To bask in the fiery sun,
Until the waves wash
Higher,
Reclaim their treasure,
To display before other,
Wilder,
Eyes.
