Sea star, Oregon beach. (Kathleen Kenna photo)

I’m grateful for finding a sea star on the sand on an Oregon beach.

I lifted it to the water, after low tide, hoping it would revive.

But the sea star was dead, already drying stiff with rigor mortis.

It was so beautiful, I stood for a moment admiring the gem-like waterdrops on its body.

I was grateful for a moment of stillness in the afternoon sunlight.
