Only the heart may know

Seashell

Silent Sea, tell this to me
Where are the children that we used to be
At picture shows where nobody goes and only the heart can see
Starry skies, soft lullabies
Where do they go when their melody dies
To a day, far, far away, that only the heart may know
That only the heart may know

~ Dan Fogelberg

Your post title drew me right over. The shell spiral is beautiful even in its lived in state. Thanks for the verse by Dan Fogelberg, too....I enjoyed his music very much.

I have always been a big fan of Dan Fogelburg...his music was so fulfilling.
And the shell, well, I am consumed by shells. Isn't nature fantastic?

I love Dan Fogelburg's music. Makes me want to find my old tapes of his music and put them on to listen to!

Wow, what a gorgeous photo. I can't stop looking at it. Probably the best photograph of a shell that I ever saw.

Your pictures are lovely. You really have a gift.
