Rip-roar
thunder water
pound the beach and
crush those castles made from sand
tenderly.
Carry them out to sea
to rest in peace
on the silty floor,
a doormat for crustaceans.

The whole idea is that beautiful things fade away. Sometimes they are taken away mercilessly, yet naturally. So much care may be put into something, but it's gone in a heartbeat.
