sand art
By Sarah W. Laurence, Brunswick

winter is a sand artist
snow and salt bleach bare the dunes
Arctic air dyes the sky deep azure
wind and waves sculpt rhythmic grooves
sand changes color from dry, to wet, to frozen
the topography ebbs
tide drags stones, etching trees in sand
submerged, the beach is a mirror
uncovered, surreal
the landscape is my museum
I am curator, witness, muse
