The features of the sand is that each grain is equally 1 mm in diameter, burns when thrown in fire, multiples by itself in soda water, and shows spontaneous proliferation when you look at it under the magnifying glass. Indeed, the only other region of the world where this sand can be found is in the Red Sea.
like the sands of Cleopatra’s Beach
that Antony shipped all the way from
Egypt to Cedar Island on the Aegean
for their honeymoon
The rays of the golden sun above
reflected in the specks of her Tiger’s Eye gaze,
she beamed and hinted her approval
Yellow mimosa buds peeking between
the delicate leaves of the acacia trees on the hills
recalled the scene under the cerulean sky
and how she listened to the songs
of the golden ripe wheat right before harvest,
coming from the mainland.
She stroked his sun-streaked hair and
gazed into his honey-coloured eyes.
A kiss, a promise of eternity fell into the sea,
The golden moon rising behind the hills,
beheld the view and vowed
giving life to the sand forever,
to carry their story into the future.
