Circe by Krista Canterbury Adams

Reading shells of pearly hue,
Scrying the luster
At the center of the wave—
 
I am mistress
Of all that’s hidden here,
 
Of what
Remains.
 
To my ear
I hold this
Polished ridge,
Listen long to its remembrances—
 
Listen
to the salty song
Of ocean’s burning
Murmuring brightly there.
