Sand Dollar Doves

I remember when you told me
There were five tiny doves
Inside the heart
Of every sand dollar.


We had to wait
Until we'd found a broken one
Before I could see.



As I remember
There was some bad luck involved



In breaking a sand dollar
Yourself.

So you had to wait for a wave


To do it for you.

*In loving memory of my grandmother...  Who could ever hope to fill the special place you filled in all our hearts?*
