Picking up the shells from the beach of the sea,
I noticed there was one that was just so green..
I picked it up and noticed the others-
How they floated away with the flow of the water.
Sand grains pricked my eyes as I stood in the storm;
The air floated deporting all that was left loose.
All around it was dusty and pale-
As if the weather was mourning within a veil!
The water cleanses everything that it touches,
Taking the mud and dirt away-
It makes her look so desirable,
When the fine droplets shine on her face!
Children draw lines on the earth while they play,
Building sand castles all around.
Trotting around in joy with sand fill buckets,
Their laughter could be heard miles away.
The water smoothens the stones that it floats on-
Shining everything, brightening them up!
They appear so bigger and yet at a distance..
Never touching you when you stretch your hand!!
The very next objects appear to be far far away-
The particles pronounce the miles in between..
The “fragments” grain themselves into your being;
As you are left to fight out even to try and see..
Notice how wind and water changes the sand..
How they tame the dust to become so lame!
The desert is where the sand rules-
Otherwise all it becomes is dirt in vain!!
I am the sand and exist in my world,
They dare not come to stay here in my domain.
For its miles of spread of dust alone-
And I hover with the wind that blows all around!
I need some water that washes me away..
Purify me; and make my particles condense.
So I gather all my specks; the one’s up in the air,
Collecting them all so I become a “one”-
Complete the whole of “Me” in one place.
Afternote– As I finished writing this, I felt like some sand grains crushed in my mouth..
