Footsteps
are US
We are become
the footprints OF us

Our little journeys across the sand
Tide taking our past away
A wall of air forward
And forever outstretched arms
Hair backwards
Boom
of the beat
of the heart
An empty church to birds and worms

Leave nothing
Touch
nothing

Think big

The sea
The sky
The church?

I walk in front
The tide walks behind
I’m not competing
But I am aware
I can go faster
If I need to

Salt
hair
Salt skin
Eyes
deep

The beach

Nature curves
Into curves
Into words
That curve

The light

Nature bends
Beams end
Bounce
Bend

This
is MY wave
Collecting
My journey
Kept
On a shelf

I leave footprints everywhere I go
If you can’t see them
It doesn’t mean I haven’t been there
Contrails
Comet tails
Extraordinary tales

We leave footprints everywhere we go, When we are you and I
Weaving in and out of human traffic
Waltzing in the ballroom of our lives
Dresses brushing past
Uncoiled
Arms
Smiles
Eyes bright

Life
