It is the time of the week when I attempt to get my syllables in a row to participate in Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 128
And this week the words that Colleen has provided at a prompt are ‘Spring and Sing‘… I have chosen the synonyms ‘Bounce and Serenade’
The Footsteps of my Ancestors. #Haibun
Barefoot I walk the sands of time. A bounce in my step as the earth’s energy rises through the soles of my feet. I am connected to the layers that form the strata beneath me formed over millions of years. Through the debris of those ancient times I sense the echo of other feet. Those of my ancestors across the ages who have trekked this earth from continent to continent. Crossing icy wastelands and mountain ranges, to this place where I walk in their footsteps. The wind that accompanied them on their journey, serenades me as I draw strength from hallowed ground.
Earth as we know it
was formed by the drifting sand
and nomadic tribes
