Seaweed with stars
Water. Essential for survival. Beautiful. But also devastating in its power – sweeping away animals, homes and businesses throughout Queensland.
But here all is serene. A delicate fragment of seaweed broken from a much larger branch, swept up and caught in a sandy pool. Catching the pale sunlight, magnifying…something, a speck of quartz perhaps, casting unexpected stars of exquisite beauty, floating on the pale floor of the pool. Swaying back and forth as the uncertain breeze catches the water.
Life’s a bit like this at times. We find unexpected gems at the end of twisting pathways. We rejoice.
A Drabble is a story told in 100 words. No more. No less.
