Oceans of sand

Oceans and oceans of sand
As far as the eye can see!
Oceans and oceans of sand
From here to eternity!
Can you see the waves billow,
And can you hear the waves roar?
Oceans and oceans of sand,
Far from the watery shore!

  1. “Oceans” is the best word to describe such an overwhelming force of sand.

  2. The desert is the best! You can hear the pulse of creation there..ocean included!

  6. Beautiful description of oceans of sand.

  7. Really like your idea of oceans…wonderful photo, wonderful words,


  8. As vast as ocean or desert nice resonance and rhyme

    Much love…

  9. Sadly not enough of us can look at the Earth and see that it is slowly changing constantly and now in the last few years it is changing rapidly all because of our stupidity. So few of us seem to care because they, a) don’t think affects us, b) don’t see a problem that we create waste, c) don’t see the value of trees and oceans which produce oxygen to breathe and food to eat, d) don’t care what our children and grandchilden will face in the future, d) don’t believe any of this is happening! e) but do believe if it does happen we can all go to Mars instead!

  10. In your words yes I can hear the ocean – you make it (M)agical

  11. Ah, a vivid and textural image of the oceans of sand. Quite enchanting.

  12. Indeed, often the waves and the sand seem to extend forever…..a glimpse of eternity.

  13. Rosemary Nissen-Wade

    Oh yes! A friend who lives by the desert told me once, ‘This is my ocean.’

  14. Beautiful shot; reminds me of My Beloved. I’ve never called her Sandy, though; only Sandra.
