Just In
for The Shell

I like the soft manter you've built up with this. Almost like a shell singing...but some words did impede on that, like "spat" - perhaps a softer word. The ending, with "wreck" also did a little.

I also really like the repetition of "still waiting in the" followed by one of nature's forces. It served to emphasise the power of nature and its force, particularly as the poem centred around the poor shell being battered by all variations...superficially of course. I'm sure I spot some deeper possibilities. Use and abuse for one. The mask of beauty...shells really are beautiful.

Goes from peaceful to depressing. :P Nevertheless, nice poetry. I can see it as a book with big illustrations! :D
