The seaweed dries slowly, small decorative curls
which have been artfully spread among the stone
and shell scavenged from the beach.
As the seaweed dries salt crystallises on the rubbery skin.
As it dries farther and the moisture evaporates entirely
the tiny crystals drop and lie without direction on the sill.
On closer inspection it is realised how precisely formed they are –
cubic solids on a minute scale. Midst the careful arrangementof conch and pebble this fallen saline is perfection.
