Blowing Sand

Blowing Sand

A Poem by Marie Harrison

a poem about time


Blowing Sand

grain by grain,

time is blowing away

all of the best

is leaving me now


cell by cell

I'm blowing away too


time to run

time to play

time to pray


swimming in the ocean

holding hands

long bubble baths

long talks with God

cooking chicken marsala


long vacations

slow dancing

going home

black diamond ski runs

dinner conversation

kisses in the dark

long walks with my dogs

jogging in shorts when it's cold

chocolate covered cherries

lots of hugs

reading a good book by a fire


grain by grain

these are the things

I want to blow my sand on


these are things

that matter

to me
