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

laughing

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

and

my

cells

Oh the simple pleasures in life bring the most joy... the simplicity of the poem add to the charm of the message.

I like this poem. It's very retrospective. It reminds me of flicking through glossy photos printed on Kodak paper. It really does have that kind of imagery.
