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
toward 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.
