A Grain Of Sand - Poem by Uloia Norris Moore

Upon a beach
must after sought
feet our toes
the fingers they
know

That which all
wish to walk
small grains of
sand
do so talk

A pearl saith I
can so become
if the wise oyster
takes me in

The sun shinning
down
backs hot
into the sea
all run for comfort

Salty skin
fresh ocean
smell
towel drapped
around
does make
all feel well

While foot print
in the sand
left I
when turning back
thundering of a wave
did I so hear

I glance back
ocean reclaimed
that which
was hers

    This is a strangely appealing piece - with its awkward, staccato rhythm and its warm recognizable images of the sea. Great title too. There is much depth beneath your waves. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply

    There is a loving feel about this poem. We are all but a grain of sand under someones eyes. We leave our footprints on this earth where ever we go. A great write my friend and thanks for sharing it.
