Love in the Sand

by TAB_that's me

Two lovers walking hand-in-hand across
the wind-swept ocean shores, their simple note
of love recorded on the sandy beach.

How many drafts of love have been removed,
enfolded in the waves to cross the blue,
then tossed upon the shore athwart the sea?

How many grains of sand have held the words
of love or seen initials framed in hearts,
then buried deep inside the crashing waves?
