The Wealth ,Sand!

(Google image)
Blot not sand,your wealth.
Sand, Mother Earth’s hand holds for
 Your food and water.

Flower flaunts wide smile.
She thinks not, next day she will
Fade and fall in sand.

Men clash for sand and 
Soil; think they don’t, that one day
End they will, in it.

Sand ,one glances on
Shore in multi-coloured  paints.
Shimmers in the sun.

Let your steps on sand,
Imprinted guide the needy.
Be  satiated

  2. I really admire how effortlessly you weave wisdom in such few words Sarala. The best ones of the set have to be flower's living in the moment and man's feigned ignorance of the imminent. Simply brilliant!!
