Easter at Home

Easter at home In prime so highThe sea of treesCriss-crossed searchOf unseen vistasA doe path hidden Found in mudflatsYearning unknownOf the expanseQuest for wide openSpaces of mirrored skies The soul of a sea shellDrawn to ancestral ocean © #AndreaCConnolly2.4.2021 Good Friday

Net of hope

Varved organ shellsVeiled hues of sand creamCrying aqua ultramarine Bamboo wooding grassStrong wind bentEvery compass direction Veined hands knot on stakeA net of wool white cottonAgainst eclipsed darks My catchInvisibleHope © #AndreaCConnolly19.2.2021

Scallop shell

  Scallop shells Forevermore I shall Seek you out   My palms your mimicry Filled, to be Giving, to receive   Air space hold all My heart beating In rays of salted hope   Timelapsed Horizons Shall be my shell   © #AndreaCConnolly 6.2.2020
