Smorgasbord Poetry – Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge – #Haibun – The Footsteps of My Ancestors by Sally Cronin

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

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.
