In Sand-Land nothing stays the same

Although solidity seems to be the norm

But if change is going to happen in this place

It will do it by the elements of Storm.


The artist often forms the sculpture using wind

And rain could be employed to bond the casting

You can't see it taking place among the stormy blur

But when the storm is gone, the image, it is lasting.


Unlike Sand-Land, Terra-Firma seldom moves

But when it does it often takes a violent road

There are times torrential rains lend a hand

Turning surface solids to a mass that doesn't hold.


Then there are tectonic plates that crash into each other

They can raise, or bringing mountains to their knees

Flattening cities beyond the hope of recognition

And sending tidal-waves across the seven seas.


But don't you know, that is just the way it goes.

There is no Phoenix that can rise without the ashes.

The wonders of this world are just snapshots of a time

And like a lighthouse lantern shines, they are flashes.
