Forty Three . . .

Giant Magic Grains of Sand
by Stormcat

first came darkness and the lights went out.
four days the storm pummeled then blew out toward the east
coincident exactly as the tide receded west.
that's when they appeared.
giants on the beach frontage behind the house.
as if dropped from space or heaved up through the ground.
we were children then and dubbed them giant magic grains of sand.
many hours of play were dedicated to those rocks.
to this day I don't know how they got there nor do I ever want to know.

  2. Sometimes it's best not to know, the beauty lies in the mystery. Nicely written!
