Endeavors …so be it.

She was built of sand.

An hour from myself

uninterrupted.

Purely my own

from my secret place

enchanted.

No monument needed

when you get what you seek,

Believing.

Passion envelops us,

keeps us from aging

as time stops.

Busy hands create happy hearts.

Endeavors …so be it.

    Beauty found in your words and in the sand sculpture. Love the line ‘Busy hands create happy hearts.’ This is so true.

    I’m not sure anything keeps us young, but some things keep us young at heart … that would include your poetry, my dear.

    Thanks for another goodie!

Tell me something good...
