BLOGGING FROM A TO Z CHALLENGE – APRIL 3 – C


C’s for Cowries on our beach,
Choose right times for these to reach;
Come with tide that’s just in flow –
Creeping higher, out they go.

 

Certain of them get to stay,
Climbing upwards all the way;
Capture those before next high
Causes them to pass one by.

 

Currently one finds a few
Coursing ‘currently’ right through,
Catch a glimpse in rocky pools –
Clutch, ‘fore surge your vision fools!

 

Clams and winkles, scallops, mussel,
Can, as well, be found to rustle;
Cockles, whelks and all the rest?
Cowries are by far the best!
