Beside this gleaming shore

What precious gems
have been set here
to grace the hem
of Mother Ocean's
flowing gown:
the silver glow of driftwood
on a moonlit beach,
the golden strands of algae
woven into the water's edge;
sparkling diamonds
tossed by an afternoon sun
across the shoulders
of a dark, dark sea...
such riches greet
the lucky souls
who walk or live
beside this gleaming shore...

The image is other-worldly. Visually very eye-catching.
