A Grain of Sand

Ebbing and flowing tides
And winds constantly churning
Sugary sands into ripples

High tides and low tides
Repeatedly etching
Abstracts of hills and valleys
Sculpting an artist’s dream

Ocean’s gifts of feathers and seashells
Beach glass and trinkets
Remnants of creatures now gone
Gently washed by salty seas

Stand at the shore
Feel the sand pulling
Feet disappearing
Enshrouded ankles now deep in soft sands

A single grain of sand
Gentle when alone
Powerful en masse
Giving and taking in perpetuity
As tides ebb and flow
Susan Werby

Dedicated to anyone who loves to sink heels and then toes into the sand…such a pleasure!

“Take only memories, leave nothing but footprints.”
