Butterfly Cinquain – Washed Up by Sally Cronin

Washed up
are words that haunt
those that feel they have failed
to meet expectations in life
and love.
If they look closely however,
even the sea’s rejects
provide us with
beauty.

  2. Great photo, Sally, but your poem is haunting. It is so appropriate during this strange time where people struggle to keep up with everything and fail. I would not have thought of getting encouragement from a bit of trash from the sea. You are a remarkable positive thinker. 🙂
