My first attempt at an etheree

Archaeology on the Beach 

I

poke

claggy

sand turn

pebbles feel

with probing

finger tips touch

sharpness of ancient

flint sharp and smooth

last held by a Stone Age

hand that knapped its edges

until they were dark and ribbed

I lift it from its earthy grave this tool

an arrowhead so simple yet unique

relinquished by a North Norfolk flint circle
