Sand and Stones

for miles


Bleached bone white

with silver skin,

The beach stretched out

for miles…

the crunch of sand and stones

became the echo for

every swollen step…

And as I glanced about, I realized that

The archetypes were all here…

And, this piece of shore

was the first….

The model for all who came after…

And all who never were before…

Do you go on forever?  I asked…

As the grains fell from my hands…

The answer you gave was clear…

And, with the knowledge  in my eyes…

 my feet picked up and traveled on…

the beach gently beckoning…

With the feeling of sand and stones a lilting reminder

that forever is much more…

Than it really…
