Broken Castle


And thus the playground kingdom returns to undreamt sand, 
so easily crushed underfoot.  Each grain a piece of the rock, 
but forming them united for common purpose does not equal 
awe-inspiring monolith standing mute with the majesty of the 
age.  Rather, it is a simulacrum at best, a shadow of a shade, 
torn asunder and rent by ocean's deep relentless waves, or by 
callous children running by.  Sand Castles were ever the most 
impermanent of dynasties, their architects were ever the silliest  
dreamers, and perhaps such origins gave the Castle a certain 
nobility, or perhaps it simply means too much time in the Sun.
