star streak of blue
water and coins electric blue
fuzzy squiggle
swish water

dot blue
splash of blue swirl
she blushes pink


A splash dashes across the surface,
as red bounces on white
foam roaming over the waves
and loam, behold! ...

Moisture grizzles in the sandy soil
at the edge of the bright blue sea.


Now here's the science bit...

Loam is soil composed of sand, silt, and clay in relatively even concentration.

• Loams are gritty, plastic when moist, and retain water easily, yet they keep a lot of the water. They generally contain more nutrients than sandy soils.

• Dependent upon the concentrations of sand, silt and clay you can have:

sandy loam, silty loam, clay loam, sandy clay loam, silty clay loam... (but what about cloamy sand or clammy slomes or even clandy cilty soams I ask?)

• A "loamy" soil feels mellow and is easy to work over a wide range of moisture conditions. (sort of an easy-going kinda dirt :)

And did you know? Loam is also used for the construction of houses.

Walls covered inside with a layer of loam work well to control air humidity. Loam, combined with straw, is also a widely-used construction material in poorer countries.
