Flash fiction55 : Key hole

It has rings
or layers of
plink and plunk.

Hands around a tidy,
square box.
Bring it down
tip it :   
A big seed rolling,    
one stone sliding

or, open to find
a shell shaping white.    

Outside is striped in colors
the lid stamped
by a mystery face;

the saving and hiding
of secrets has begun.
