Grains of Sand

Grains of SandTo love is a sacred art of tending The beloved lives through the small, a grain of sand Love itself, the mover Every action, reaction, response shapes a beach just so… Each experience, each soft touch, each caress, or kiss resisted, affection withheld, turn of cheek adds a grain or strip one away Of course large storms of challenge will come and transform an entire line of ocean, but they will be rare and exotically life lessons But the art is to discover, uncover, remember one’s ability to give more sand than one takes. It is to love the simple, sacred art of the small, a grain of sand’s giving. an act on love’s behalf of tending.
