Sand Grain Cohesion


The grains squeeze in between the toes,

After being pressed so tight along the beach,

Leaving wandering trails along the surf,

Where the tides move in and out to fill in time.


Prehistoric hourglass grains of sand, still coming ashore,

Eons of footprints gravity haunt a shorelines endless horizon.

But not one print remains, but felled like a sand made castle,

Absorbed so level upon the water and wind’s livid emotions.


Yet under extreme pressure and heat, sandstone formed

Rigid to form the face of wind’s abrasion in desert storms.

Nature sculptured sentinels slowly falling in the millennia,

Chiseled away a grain at a time dropping down Grand Canyons.


Aggregate of evolving generations into sand and gravel mortar

In trillions upon trillions of manmade sand grain mixed cohesion.

Among skeletal reinforced steel rods arising onto initial skyscrapers,

Weather extreme contraction and expansion along miniscule cracks.


One walks surfing the wind along the waves rolling among tranquility,

Where the sun bleaches sand dry along the path to the condominium.

Cemented in strength to hold those that fill up these secure rooms,

But after a hurricane, it shows the s-hell in lost sand grain cohesion.
