Grains of Sand

Grains of Sand

Like grains of sand
Settled in sea,
Washed
We rise and stand,
Over millennia we rub up
And down
The coastline,
Grinding
Shining
Tumbled around
Some wash along the ocean currents
Grabbed along by the
Tide
Tumbling out to sea
Some settle, sucking down
Embedded by anemones
Roots and
Snails
Home for however long
It takes for tectonic removal
To strip bare ridges
And you’re left
Mingling around the waterway
Always free
Yet yearning for
conditional stability
