Tide

Tide

The tide is coming in

its wiping out the deftly deposited footprints

down shore

enveloping them in sea water

 

The tide is coming in

its tempting little toes

daintily dancing down the sand to

enter its cool waters

 

The Tide is coming in

its cartwheeling shells in its waves and

depositing them on the

edge of the dry bit of the beach

footprints-in-sand.jpg

Four sets of feet walking in line on the beach

As you follow the line of footprints

Patterns begin to emerge

as footprints snake from east to west

smaller feet seemingly running rings around the big ones

but as we reach the end of the walk

these little feet disappear

washed away by northern water ? – No!

on their way to Fish and Chips

a little one has had his pips

his battery – is a little whacked

so Grandad has given him a piggyback.

Footprints in the Snow

In response to the prompt

Footsteps

Footprint.png

Falling snow, covers the ground

Over hills and more – wind is only sound

On a patch of land – some Y shaped feet

Towards a pond coming down the street

Perhaps they’re on a hunt for some food

Rallying in number – Not being rude

In parallel cyclists head through the snow

Navigating the way to the warmth the go

Towards the house leaving trails with glee

Some little feet – my nephews, heading home for tea!
