Watching The Children Play

my thoughts are interrupted

by the pound of the surf mixed

with the shrieks of girlish laughter

propped behind my notebook

i view their times of sand castles and dreams

as a moment that has somehow passed me by

while i was too busy living forever


they too shall sit upon this chair

and contemplate the sand

that has run through their fingers like years
