Memories of the Sea

Is the ocean really inside seashells?

When i place the shell to my ear
and listen with all my might
it seems to me I hear the sea.
Does the sea notice me?
Shells are the sea urchins debris
not disposed of thoughtfully.

A past home for a crawling thing.
A shelter from the cold.
The urchin looked elsewhere and
vacated it as the shell was old.

The shell not loved anymore.
Friendless and forlorn.
Whispers of days gone by.
Memories of the sea.
