Nautilus~by Roxi St. Clair


 

 

Nautilus

In the chambers —
five hundred million
years of history
flowed within.
Not hastily —
for there was
so much time from
when the sea was
yet unnamed…
spiraled by infinite
beginnings and endings
in a sacred geometry,
it held much wisdom
from eras long ago…
then swallowed,
swallowed by tides
in foamy waves —
uncurled by
seaweed fingers
and taken to depths
where only echoes remain.
