Footprints in the Sand

Footprints in the sand, Chesterman Beach, Tofino, British Columbia, Canada
I walk through life
Leaving impressions
Footprints in the sand
I’m leaving my mark

A few gentle waves
Erase a footprint
A sustained wind
Fills it with sand

Are ephemeral
As am I

Empty my mind
Of the steps I have taken
Become mindful
Of the step I am taking
Then consider
The next step to take
