To a Little Sand Crab

Updated on October 7, 2014

The sand is mighty landscape

A terrain both grainy and clingy

As a gentle breeze blows tiny crystals

Crystals that stick to oil covered skin

A welcome rush on a hot day

And I sit up from my partial slumber

To notice the tiniest black eyes

Peeking from the smallest dune

The eyes watch me with curiosity

And blue eyes return the stare

Such a silly thought to have this exchange

Yet, I sit in the middle of the land of two-legged creatures

And this tiny creature is the only beast with time to share

A smile with a stranger.
