(c) Mikesjournal February 2006


With footprints

We marked these dunes

Up and down we marched

like Monstrous soldier ants

Names, carved initials, tracks and tracings

Into the willing earth,

As master painters might

We marked these paths

So clear our trails that others might follow

Forever it seemed.

Soon everywhere we looked

We saw footprints.

Soon everywhere we stood we saw power

Our marks eternal.

And in the morning

The wind kissed the dunes

Our footprints gone as though

We had never been.
