Thoughts that stray into nothing Or everything There is no answer I watch a lonely wave rise, and rise Did it fall or does it touch the sky? Who is to know, but the sands we cannot hold The little fist clutches tighter
It's a vast city, and a tiny life Between a sunset and sunrise Summer rain in alleys that go everywhere And nowhere Tomorrow, if the sun doesn’t rise What do we do, if the sands no longer care? The world moves into her eyes
I make a sand castle, and wait for the wave The sun beats down the charcoal unease As I loosen, and breathe And dream My hands of creation leave behind a glorious city And at its edge I sit, and wait With my prayers for mercy.
