Ten Tons of Sand by Russell Ayres

Ten tons of sand

On my shoulders

Drifting thru my fingers

Ten tons of sand

A heavy haul

That’s a lot of weight

Ten tons of sand

An oppressive mighty obstacle

Carved from the land

Each and every grain-like particle

A new beginning

written by Russell Ayres
a guest poet from Hamilton Hill, Australia
