Jubilant architect

Hello Sand Bubbler Crab, what pretty little balls you make!! 🙂
A quiet fireworks of sand balls appear across the beach, patterned universes of tiny planets made anew after every high tide by jubilant architects.

They roll out hope beads tirelessly, one after the other, in search of nothing but the fulfilment of nature. Yet for anyone who would pause to observe, they leave beautiful stories.

I met the Sand Bubbler Crab and her meticulous masterpieces on a calm, pristine beach in Malaysia and immediately fell in love. The perfect little bubbles forming shapes of palm trees and flowers, the small transparent worker I would have easily missed, busy rolling away the sand, unaware of the magic she creates, the stories she’s inspired! If I might be like that Sand Bubbler Crab! ❤

If you’re as fascinated as I am with these lovely creatures, here’s a wonderful article and film.

Thanks to WP for the opportunity to share this!

  1. Hi there,
    I stumbled upon your blog through Daily Prompt. I think you have a bunch of lovely writings, be it poetries or stories 🙂
    I never knew about the amazing crabs, seeing them and their masterpiece is on my bucket list now!! What was the name of the beach in Malaysia?

    PS: I thought of using The Twenty Sixteen Theme for my blog. Now I regretted it a little bit. Hm. It look so great on your blog!

    1. Hello E,

      Thank you so much for your kind words, they mean the world to me!

      The place in Malaysia is Langkawi! I’m starting a series of soul-nourishing travel experiences and this is actually going to be one of the first places I write about. There will be more details on the beaches so I hope you’ll come back and check it out, or better yet – visit the place! That would be amazing!

      PS: I think your blog is beautiful! Going to follow you now ❤
