The Sand

The sand of a billion years old

Gathered in my shoes

“Here lie creatures of which I was never told:

Forgotten ancient species”, I muse

 

Old beings died and fell

And sunk down to the sea bed

They washed up with the swell

Right to where I treasure

 

I looked up at the sunny weather

Waves continued to crash, forever
