A single grain of sand,

the DNA of Mother Earth.

A seed that rolled along Oceans for millennia.

This grain,

formed from the heat of all there was, is and

will be,

the "was" that peeled unconscious life

into beings that walk the land.

The land that drank deep.

The first Man.

The first Woman.

The first Child.

That which held the prints of hands, knees and

the foreheads

of the first Prayer.

This seed call sand, had ships shadow over it

as they circumnavigated the World.

This seed called sand, had laid upon it drowned


of Mothers, Fathers, sons and daughters


Robbed of home.



This seed called sand, moved by hurricanes and

land shifts,

creatures and coral.

This seed, called sand is the truest of Bible.



Written in a language of God that took Billions

of years to write.

More Billions to read.

And eternity of speak.

This sand.

This seed.

This of many from a bit of mountain,

a fraction of Unity.                                               Universe.
