A philosophy of life through daily experiences

Sand and Water

Lying by the ocean bay
Tormented by the Sun's rays
In the sea of sands;
A life of extremities
No help does she expect.
Hope was born soon, though
In form of a mighty wave
Washing over the heated bay
Pleasure did the water give
It was in those few moments
That she truly lived.
Time and nature repelled
He wanted to stay longer
But was eventually dragged away
Faded in the passage of time.
For the poor sand particle
Her soul was snatched away
The dampness of the sand
Was all now left of him.
The water dried up too
His memories now dead
For, in his absence
Her life rendered senseless.
She stood there thinking
He would return someday
Lying by the ocean bay
Tormented by the sunrays
In the sea of sands.

Welcome to Poetbay! I like the cadence, the measured pace, of this poem, deliberate and subtly musical ...

This is haunting. I keep reading it over and over getting more and more acquainted with her and the story. Itís familiar and strange all at the same time. Applause.

I like the interplay of irony and reality in this one... Excellent.

Longing for those few precious moments to return, to have another chance at it, maybe that it something universal. This poem feels as if it speaks to everyone; or, everyone who has felt that tug, and cannot forget it.
