Untitled (footprints on the sands of time)

Spread the love

I, made my way slowly, jogging down the beach
closing in, towards the waning amber-rose sun.
The sound, of crashing waves, calms my nerves
as I attempt to catch hold of my breath.

Though, bitter be the drops of gloom, I swallow,
I, sought to embrace, the fire, that burns within.
Doubt, drives an arrow, into depths of my heart.
But then, life is never easy for those who dream.

I love the grain of sand slipping inside my shoes
the way, its warmth, tickles the soles, of my feet.
I listen to the wanton singing of the birds flying,
feeling closer to nature than ever before.

‘It’s going to be clear skies from now on.’

    The last stanza is so gorgeous, Sanaa, and so hopeful, particularly:
    ‘I love the grain of sand slipping inside my shoes
    the way, its warmth, tickles the soles, of my feet’.

  2. Susan says:

    I love this poem, as a dreamer, who knows life isn’t easy for dreamers, confirms the dreaming in her last 2 lines: “feeling closer to nature than ever before. / β€˜It’s going to be clear skies from now on.’

    You capture the freedom of the moment very well.

    Beautiful write Sanaa!
    Two things here, first the very picture you have painted of jogging on the beach with the vividly painted sun image… is brilliant. secondly, the optimistic note at the end, makes it an impactful piece!

    Very nice, Sanaa. I wonder how many dream enough to be “dreamer”. I dream. The line, “life is never easy for those who dream” tells it like it is. But I hope to never stop dreaming.
