Castles in the Air

Castles in the Air
Sun shining,
        Waves rolling incessantly.
The shore, all hot and soft.
Spade and shovel in hand,
She builds sand castles.
Gazing across the sea,

I see the wide horizon –
The frame;
And we, the picture in it.

A time lapse.

The sand slowly cools.
The setting sun diffuses
Into the expanse of the sky.
An orange-red roof above us.
‘Life is exquisite’, I think,
When a big wave swallows her castles.
