sea glass

I hadn’t known intimacy until
you undressed me with your words,
leaving me bare to weather an unfamiliar storm
as my seas parted for you.

You couldn’t have known that I was already
drunk and drowning in desire when you penetrated
the unexplored depths of myself with only
your naked mind.

Three of the most common sea glass colours.

From West Coast Sea Glass
“Emerald green is one of the more common colors of sea glass. It originates from mass produced bottle glass that commenced production in the US in the early 1900s.
“Seafoam green sea glass often originates from vintage soda bottles. Many pieces can date back to the late 1800s. That is when the Coca-Cola bottling company began manufacturing their famous, distinguishable light green bottle. By the early 1900’s America saw a surge in mass bottle production. And Coca Cola was one of the front runners. By 1909 over 400 bottling plants were functioning in the US.   
“Aqua blue is the sea glass color that seems to be diminishing the fastest especially along Pacific and Caribbean shores. Some glassware that it can commonly originate from is canning jar and electric insulator glass.  Both are items that are almost never used or produced for use today.”
