miracle

My poem today for NaPoWriMo.

 

miracle

the word was written
in my handwriting
on a sea shell
that washed ashore
in my sister’s dream
last night

an echo of the time I’d written
peace on shells
and left them
on the sand

she is certain
the word she dreamt
was meant for me
but I will leave it
an arc between us,
a band of stars
waiting on the dark sky of promise
