Sand castle

Sand castle

Most of my work, I publish on my own website. From time to time, I also write poetry for The Ministry of Poetic Affairs. This poem, Sand castle, is all about the wish to make something beautiful.

Sand castle

By Harm

If I was to build a sand castle
what would you do?
Wait till the waves crashing in?
Would this be acceptable
for you?

Or would you ask me to stop
A useless effort
I needed to drop
My work in the dirt?

A sand castle is fragile
it’s made of sand
But it’s so adorable
for as long as it will stand

Should I use bricks instead
I have no bricks, only sand
Is that something I should have said?
And building castles I can’t
