Sand Castles

Let's build a sand castle today
perhaps on the shores of Monterey Bay
where the sand shines bright
in a sheen of pure and golden light

and find starfish that will dance
within its moat
and sea otters that will float
so unafraid

for in safety will we build
our armament
and love will flourish
for the time we share

dreaming of castles in the air
until we find just where
we ought to be . . .
