Sand and Snow

“Today it snowed on the beach. Weighty hefts of white fell, politely asking the sand to make way for their arrival. It was a sunshine kind of sand, golden from a distance, but when you got up close, when you scooped the grains out of your pocket, and shook them from your shoes, different colours started to appear.

The frozen air saw the flakes gather for warmth before they would soon melt back into the earth. Their unique patterns lay hidden to outside eyes, reflected only by a twinkling.

Under thickly splashed lines, grit and shell and seabed by turns fragmented and whole, buffed and shimmering, met the finest points of infinite stars fallen from the skies.”
