Another Place, Another Time
Through a computer screen I see, enlarged, a pendant
for sale, fashioned from materials found
while walking early mornings on a Scottish beach.
The artist prizes nature’s castoffs more than manmade.
She paired the two with a pearl, a glass bead,
added a silver chain, created a jewelry piece.
Pounded and tumbled by waves, water, and wind,
a smooth, stone-shaped sliver of clear glass
from a whiskey bottle, and a rose-and-white,
floral-patterned pottery shard
from some Highland lady’s plate.

I decided to read an old book my mother had laying around the house. It was the summer after I graduated college and needed something to fill my time since.
