The ocean sighed and with an agreement between all its molecules, washed away evidence of those that were here before me.

Then the wind tapped me on the shoulder and whispered a poem so beautiful that I wrote it in the sand. A wave came and washed it away and although startled, I was not sad because at least I had known beauty.
