 I knew who you were
Long before we met
You made sand castles
That climbed to the sky

Beautiful and meticulous
Such a shame they could
Not last longer then a day
I saw the pleasure on your face

Each time you started anew
It was like the building of them
Gave you a strengh. . .
Carrying you through

Life is like a sand castle
We have all these hopes and dreams 
When they tumble down
We only have two options...
                   To quit or start all over

the message in this poem is so utterly meaningful
I am especially fond too of the first stanza
it is is the wholeness here

Sand and Shore
Reviewed by Christine Volkoff 10/17/2010
There is enough in this poem to feed years of meditation. Two options, indeed...absolutely profound, great metaphor, so well done!
Reviewed by Mary Lacey, Desertrat 10/17/2010

Life is a fragile thing. I love your metaphor of the sand castle, although it can be beautiful, is always knocked down and we have to start over. Great Write.
