A castle invaded by an army.

The castle was built with meticulous hands;
Walls of fragile fawn;
Proud and striking, it stood like a king;
Encircled with water that sparkled as molten gold in the topaz sun;
A glittering star shone above the inhabitants heads.
Filling their world with bliss.
Chilled spears struck the turrets;
The castle crumbled;
Effort of the craftsmen, lost in the debris;
An army surged upon the borders of the land, roaring in unreined wrath;
Destroyed was the happy peace that once dwelled;
The sand washed away in the waves…

Nice ... In the end, everything is just like the sandcastle: existing only for a short while before fading away into eternity.
