Overjoyed and Under a Spell


One night, a girl traveled to an ocean shore nearby. She was with a boy and they both were overjoyed. Overwhelmed and under a spell, they felt like a moonlit swim in the ocean was the only cure. Before dawn breaks, they abandon their quiet, cave-like and newfound home to head inward. Suddenly, this girl realizes she left behind her rings, her gem stones, these things she felt naked without. And so, upon daybreak, she set out to search for the rings she left behind.
With all hope that they would still be there,
among the people that have set up their umbrellas
and boogie boards
and among all the children playing by the sea,
there, upon the rock she left them,
were her rings.

She felt as if she had lost herself, and found herself that moment.
The gems, the stones, the memories captured
within those pieces of jewelry,
were also pieces of her,
lost and then found again.
