HOMAGE TO THE SEA – Zihuatanejo Snaps

 A few quintillion grains of sand; five waves a minute for eons.

Inevitably the masterpiece emerges, an homage to the sea 

by all the land creatures.

Reaching down, muzzle and hoof and beak, they bow 

to touch the sculptor's quicksilver hand.

Hi Anonymous -- Thanks for visiting, and for your comment. I really appreciate it!
Quintillion is a word I've probably not used more than twice in my life. It's ten to the 18th power.
