Shards of Glass

Alexandra Saputo

Your footprints trace a path along the sand

While sunlight skims you with its gentle rays.

The world now falls away from where we stand

I cannot help myself. I turn and gaze

At those bright eyes, so clear and cutting blue--

Like shards of sea glass 'long the pebbly shore.

No color known could match that stunning hue.

It lights up your whole face, and even more

The smile that plays across your lips. And I 

Can feel you in the ocean's rolling song,

Beneath the salt-filled air and summer sky--

Your coy looks daring me to play along.

When I'm with you, then all the world's at ease

Together, like the sand, the sun, the breeze.
