Just like the sand castles we made as children -- I never lived by the sea but it must have been so much fun to watch the sea reclaim them as the tide came in. Such a sweet impression of what is there for a day, and then gone, like we are. Wonderful!

Darlene, I could have written a chapter of a novel in the time it took me to come up with this meter and I don't know if it is correct. Thanks for reading

I read this and the enforced metrical count of this poetic form didn't even enter my mind. It just read with a natural flow and left an interesting thought behind. I think this is just what Craig had intended!

Thanks, Wendy. I found the form difficult and am not sure it's right.
