Meditation On a Shell 
     by Lindsey Cadwell

I see a spiral galaxy, coiled in perfect symmetry
A baby's cradle, safe and secure
A winding road, curling up around a mountain
It is a cinnamon roll, glistening with frosting
I peer inside, and spy the top of a downward spiraling staircase
Or the entrance to a cave
It is a peaceful beach, spotted with the afternoon shadows of palm trees
