Spoken Differently

Girl of wonder, enclosed in silence,
she found solace at the shores edge.
The rhythmic lapping of water
over sandy toes, forever calming.

Selectively mute, her voice unpracticed,
she spoke in ways easy to miss;
footprints that skip across the sand
and the sparkle of shells in her hand.
Ocean polished pebble for her mother,
windswept hair and a smile at supper.

A sensitive creature, shy of people;
bonded to the ways of nature
like tides tethered to the moon.


~ A poem written for the Weekend Writing Prompt hosted by Sammi Cox ~

The challenge is to write a poem or piece of prose in exactly 80 words. PROMPT WORD: TETHER.
