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

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

Soft, frothy swells,
dance rythmically, creeping
toward the kingdom.

Eyes azure observe
'Oh well!'

A castle falls;
a gargantuan tan foot,
soft but coarse
ends construction.

An ocean,
A boy swims with friends.

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