Gathering Seashells


gathering seashells
while ocean tide rise and falls
two sisters bicker

a million empty conches
and they both want the same one                      (WS)

  1. Oo, i love Celestine response! you know nothing is better unless someone else also desires it, so it seems. this is really great and so true. i see it all the time in daycare. million toys to play with but they must all fight over the one toy someone is playing with. so sad.
    thank you for a great finish!


  2. Lol!Isn’t it true more often than not-coveting what someone else has?We have a saying in our country(India) which means the confectionery on the other’s plate always looks bigger;-)Wabi,this is why your completions touch me-they always reflect on real life-great job:-)


Thank you!
