Reverberation Regurgitation

and in an instant, all is washed away
by the bombarding waves of social streams
like the beaching of roaring oceans
that erodes granite megaliths into ever smaller fragments
into stones, into pebbles and into the sand and dust
that blanket the world over and line the beaches
where we leave imprints under our weight
for but a few thrashings and sweepings of the crashing waters
these words, the aggregate of thoughts and emotions
like the sand paintings of Tibetan monks
meticulously composed grain by grain
long it took and admired it was brief
like the infinite marvels of the universe
few will ever bear witness its awes
but optimistically some will understand the forces at play
