A short poem about a boy, a sand castle, his friends and the Ocean.
An Ocean, vast
the wind whipping wetly
stings.
The boy, toes dug in the sand, builds.

A castle looms,
coarse and unbalanced.
Hands, soft and careful
dutifully sculpt, forging ahead
to completion.

Soft, frothy swells,
rhythmically dance, creeping
towards the kingdom.

Eyes, azure observe
"Oh well….”
“Yahhhhhhh!”
A castle falls,
A gargantuan, tan foot, soft but coarse
ends construction.

An Ocean, vast
a boy swims with friends.
Laughter.

Soft, frothy swells
dance and recede;
castle no more.
