I have often wondered, who ate the first oyster and the circumstances surrounding this amazing feat. Whoever it was either was exceedingly desperate or exceedingly brave! Perhaps, they were both!  I now know who it was!  It was you!

Chesapeake Bay Oysters: Natures Treat

A glint of light  – Sparks

Drawn Interest – Bottom Rocks

Water Races – Swift with this tide

Shimmering light – Bottom dances to syncopated rhythm

More moons than rocks – Some yawn

Rocks don’t yawn!

A smile – hints of motion

More than sun and surf – partners in deception

You bend, you stare.

More than meets the eyes – Natures transformers

Your hand under the surface,

 you touch – a click

Moonscapes craggy surface – oval – edged stone

Above the water – a rock again

Ready to skip across the slew – or fell a bird for supper

No! – More lies within!

A slight line, a fringe

The thin edge weeps

What would a god hide inside such a strong box?

Twisting and puling – no bonds do break

Stone knapps stone – searching for the point within

At last a crack – the gods tears weep out

Your blade finds purchase

Wedge and Pry to find the prize

Such a vault – Gods Food?

Taste it? – Eat it?

There must be a first

Sweet tear drenched morstle

Heavens Elixir – Hungers Reliever

Natures New Treat
