Sugar Sand

Listen to the crunch
Of the sugar sand
As it yields to footsteps
That mark the path of man.

The grinding of crystals
Throbbing from within
A sense deeply moving
The crunch of sugar sand.

Soon the footsteps will be gone
And the time will have passed
Yet in the mind; sound everlasting
The crunch of sugar sand.
