Sand and Pearls
Proof that little things, seemingly insignificant things like grains of sand
Stuck in an oyster
Can become something much more special
Through ocean storms and smokes of tangled seaweed
The grain of sand
Undergoes metamorphosis like a caterpillar in a cocoon.
It comes out a round bead of pearl, shining and glimmering underwater
Whilst the other oyster shells lie
Discarded on the beach.
Their shells insignificant, waiting to be finely grounded
Into grains of sand.
