Footprints in the Sand

Footprints in the sand
Big ones, small ones 
Pincey toes, splayed out
Going straight, eye on the horizon
Determined, forceful, purposeful
Patterns in the sand.
Lines, squares, circles, herringbone
Adults, children
Dogs playing, running, scratching
Having fun.
A fleeting glimpse of time.
The tide comes in
Washing, cleaning, smoothing
Out the sand
A blank canvas
A new day
Full of options and possibility
Choices to take
Joy to have
More footprints in the sand.
