Footprint
By Kelly

embedded in earth
now a trail left to follow
unfound, washed away




 ~Kellsue

Reflect upon your present blessings-of which every man has many-not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. ~Charles Dickens

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. ~Winston Churchill

Those three lines say alot, first of all we all want to leave a mark in this work make a footprint and be remembered for something
(maybe I am just talking for myself here), but history is like the sea washing and cleansing/fading the past. Though if we walk a good path our children will follow our footprints.

A fantastic poem,

you have got me thinking, but I will stop before I start ranting

KellSue~
I love what you did with your footprint Haiku.  Very effective.  I'm always inspired by the creativity and the wonder of Haiku.

Footprints on my heart
Washing out to sea no more
Etched on stable ground
