flesh and blood

Flesh and blood
sinew, bone
heart and soul
while inward
senses gauze
the vast unknown
our number like
grain of sand
resting on
earthen land

Just like a
vapour of mist
opening the dawn
a heaven blue
and come the night
stars to number you
So on a quiet beach
as morning waves arrive
only the human man
can sense or realize

Something of wonder
and gazing with
feet standing firm
on this celestial ball
we are one of myriads
travellers in time
we only get one go
we only ride one time
sand on sand we are
stretch from here to far
