Fish Song

February 16, 2008
By Cara Lahr, Rockville, MD

A patch of ribbon
Weaving toward me.
Strummed strands
Of cerulean blue.

The hum of fish bones
Carried by sea
To shores
Bury, and begin anew.

Pluck the strands;
Their melody
Joins the
Chorus
Of the two
Skeletons right beside me.
In the sand they sing a tune.
