House of Beauty


And our prompt for napowrimo Day 16 is based on the idea of a picture being worth a thousand words — napowrimo posted three pictures, all loosely based around the idea of the ocean, the sea snail was the one that I picked to inspire the following poem.

House of Beauty

A house of beauty

You carry fathoms deep

Tucked in amongst flotsam and jetsam

Aqualine iced blues merge to grazing greens

Whilst your sluggy mollusc body leaves a trail unseen

Below the choppy waves
