Sandbox Sifting
~*Marge Tindal*~

In a sandbox of such thoughtfully buried treasure
I gingerly sift for words of gold-lined measure
Uncovering polished gems in graceful refine
Hidden beneath the drifted sands of time
Passing now from soiled hands to ink
Sandbox sifting to make one think
Of just how they came to be
Gifted with such regality
Left for a poet to find
When sifting for
Words of this
Kind~

There is a little girl in me that you woke up with this one.

It's been a very long time since I have let her play, too.

Thank you for reminding me.

Seems I've sifted through a lot of sand boxes over the years but never found the poetic treasures you came up with. This is yet another beauty, Marge.

God bless

You do know where my warped sense of humor went with this one, don't you? LOL You do remember my love of felines, right? ROFL...

But those stray thoughts don't deter me long from appreciating this... and the beauty you find with each sifting. *S*

Dear Marge,
It's good to know you're still in the habit of visiting the playground, as though, for you, it is only a few deft pen-strokes away.
Race you to the teeter-totter!
