Ancient stone crumbles
Washed by eternity’s waves
My footprints linger
Time’s turning seasons altered
By the smallest grain of sand

  2. Wow, yes, it’s like the domino effect, a grain of sand makes a big difference! Thank you, Sue!

    I always think, as I walk the beach, about where each stone and grain of sand came from over the eons, and what journey each traveled to be where it is at “this moment.” You captured something true and beautiful in this short poem, Sue.
