A Shell's fate
When waves swirl gravel and disturb a shell,
Congeries of the seabed secretly unfurl.
There flows a mystical tale to be told,
Emerging from the tempestuous seas so bold...
Bravely a clam peeks,
with courage, underwater or on a beach.
Enduring anxiety and difficult experiences,
whilst the water splashes its many senses.
Transforming physically its nature,
desperate to keep its original feature,
It struggles almost in vain
Does this mean it won't be the same again?
Becoming an oyster, it hides a secret inside,
As the persistent waters make one last stride,
selflessly the shell cracks open its gate...
In its womb lies a pearl as an extraordinary fate!
