Grain of Sand

Rain drops form a puddle
Sand grains shape a beach
Baby makes a family
The world is made of each

Words become a story
A note begins a song
Child sibling cousin spouse
And more before too long

Trees support the forest
Two halves make a whole
A board becomes a home
A brick defines a wall

Players make a team
Cells live inside a body
Students make a class
A building builds a city

Beans with rice in rice and beans
Potato in a stew
Yin in yang and yang in yin
Something else holds every thing

A breath inflates the sky
A moment lasts forever
I’m looking for the glue that binds
the single bits together.
