La Fonda, Baja, Mexico

There is a beach in Baja
where broken shells gather
in rich piles of remnants,
painted sunset colors.

What creative shapes
they’ve become, telling stories
of half moon, purple sky
and wide angel wings.

There is gratitude paid
to ancient stones and tumbling waves
that set them free
from expectations.

Now they can be anything.
Vast as the ocean.
Infinite as the sea.
