Shadows and Sand

     We are only shadows and sand,

Blending into deepening shades of dusk.

     We are fire in mystery’s hand,

Fragrance of bloom lost to decay’s stale musk.

     We are vague promises broken,

Form and motion that time will soon rescind.

     We are secrets vainly spoken,

Rumors on the dusty tongue of the wind.
