The creatures reanimate in anticipation

Is it softly raining

or the sea spray?


Will we make it to the shore

Or take on the lives

of tiny crabs

To have our shells

ground into sand

By the wholeness of this process

The ocean will complete us

And then we will be free

of the bonds of conscious thought.


I want to understand

how they know to roll

all the balls of sand

And in which direction.


As it really starts to rain

The sea overtakes the land

And the wind blows to perfection.
