Sands Take Me Back (poem)

Updated on September 21, 2013

Settling sands take me back take me back

Across the winds calling calling


Stardust adrift

Over soft passages

Of must be a dream


But wait

Here are the flowers

The blossoms of the unreal

Still scenting the heartbeats

Which had touched that ever never

Did it really happen


Sparkling sands it is me it is me

Patently listening listening


As moments return

Living in the pages

Of some fantasy


A kiss

Still bears the feelings

Which etched the meadows

Of lovers’ imaginations

Strolling bridge surreal so true

Does it matter after all


Close your eyes I’m waiting waiting

Wishes set on fire

A forest returned from their ashes


Can’t you see tears falling falling

Sprinkled with Joy and sorrow

The flavors of the seasons


Here I am here I am treasured time

Your seas of sands were blessings blessings


Each precious grain

Staged splendors

Slipping somewhere far away


But wait

      So long ago that it almost seems like a dream and yet it remains as fresh as if it were yesterday. Beautifully written.

      Shifting sands of time.

      Was it real?

      It does seem like a lifetime ago.

      We can all identify with this one.

      Beautiful job, Martin.
