Where does sand dance?

In water, where it rolls to shore, where sea meets land, where land embraces lake, where river runs between banks.

In the air, where sun beats down on desert, where winds shift massive dunes, where storms swirl blindingly without warning, and people—cities—everything can vanish without a trace.

Where does sand dance? In celebration. In face of change.

Sister and brother went on a journey that changed the face of the world forever.

They went to the places where water met land met nothing but air and light. They watched the sand dance, and one of them saw creation where the other saw erosion. So, this is how the earth makes itself anew. So, this is how the world ages.

Look, sister, look at this sand. Look, brother, we will be gone one day. Time will take us away.

She lifted her eyes and saw the rolling sun and the pendant moon.

If nothing in the sky moved, time would stop.
