These rings, they may deceive you,
but counting them reveals nothing;
for I am older than the sands,
more powerful than any wind.
There you lie upon my shores,
mesmerized by the rippling waves;
Do you see the life held within them?
Watch as each moves in graceful liquidity,
dancing for your amusement.
Ever patient, I sit,
faithfully stalking the land;
the stone beneath your feet.
Until rock becomes sand,
and sand becomes dust;
pulled away in timeless currents.
I am destruction,
I am sadness,
I am beauty,
I am hope,
I Am Life.
