Driftwood -
skeleton maw
wraps talon-like
around the dawn
as if begging
for a favor,
so smooth and sharp
worn bare by August -
a mermaid's rib
rubs salt from sand,
the battering lilt of seagulls
beating time
against the summer sun.
The image is by the talented photographer, :iconphilippe-albanel: Please view and fave the original here

I like to fathom the limb in the picture would be the mermaid's rib, haha!
What a lovely piece of what, as always. The picture is absolutely fitting and calm.
