 Sandcastle

by Joan Leotta

I see the sandcastle in my mind,

a truly elegant design!

 

High sculpted walls,

sleek tall turrets,

 driftwood drawbridge

encircled by a moat.

 

My hands shove,

scoop and shape.

But when it’s done

My grand landscape,

 

It’s not much more

than a hill of sand

with bumps and ridges—

not so grand!

 

No matter that soon,

a swelling sea

will roll in to claim

the work from me, for

 

I see the sandcastle in my mind,

a truly elegant design!
