Ephemeral

My response to imaginary garden with real toads Transforming with Nature’s Wonders – exploring the world of footprints

 

I follow the trail

Along the sea wall

Until it veers

Towards the sea

Past rocks

And pools

Seaweed

And shells

Intimate

Impressions

Of a stranger’s

Bare feet

Each toe

Defined

In the damp sand

Until salty waves

Fill the hollows

With shallow

Foam as ephemeral as

  1. What could be more intimate and ephemeral than footprints in the sand? And who hasn’t followed someone else’s prints along a deserted beach at one time or another? I enjoyed this walk! 🙂
