Abraham

“Then the Angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son—blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”’ — Genesis 22:15-18 NKJV Little grains of sand Assembled along the shore —Meet sunlit water

The passage of Genesis included here explains the meaning of your haiku. Without the passage, no connection would ever have been seen.
