Many people enjoy its texture    
But few take time to consider    
Its long-awaited journey to    
Its current form of existence    
The shifting of plates    
The molten of magma    
The breaking of wind    
And water upon rock    
The way it falls between your finger tips    
The way it clings to your bikini bottoms    
The way it fills your fondest memories    
Yet so many take this granite for granted    
They don't see that this once mighty mountain    
Stood tall in the sky and broke storms at her peaks    
They don't see all the little tragedies that    
Her apart, piece by piece...  
The distance she's travelled    
The storms she's weathered    
All to make her way here    
To this sun-filled beach    
I see this sand as the mountain she once was    
Still is...  
I still see her in all her glory    
Unwilling to be torn apart...  
Though she may be battered and broken to most      
I still gaze upon her soaring peaks above the clouds    
This fine granular sand held in my heart    
Still casts shadows across the plains    
It still rises to heights even the Titans      
themselves dare not reach to behold    
She is still a goddess amongst men    
And I long to hold her...
