Gods of the Sand

Let us play in the sand
You and I.

picture_17_400In our mortal ways
In our mortal days
Cross fit gods
Of the sand
we became.

Let us frolic you and I
Like children in our
Playground of sand.

With the blue foaming
Waves crashing nearby
We lunge with outstretched
Hands; fluid and grace,
Hands punching the
Ball over the net,with
An urgency as if our
Very lives depended
On that one strike.

Let as carouse you and I
Like children playing in this
Carnival of sand.

But the world revolved;
New life born
Old life torn,
Empires Lost and won
As the leaves fell
And rose with the waves,
Yet it was springtime
In my heart.

In our mortal ways
In our mortal days
Cross fit gods
Of the sand we
Became.

As Olympus smiled on,
I realised that eternity
Is the heart
Of a child.

But in that one
Shinning moment,
I played with the
Innocence of a child.

As king of the
playground
I became.
