Exquisite nights across the sea shore;
The warmth of love soaring to the core.
Hand in hand as they walk;
Footprints in the mud – their sweet talk.
Redefining love in their very own way;
The wind’s in their favor to savor their stray.
The legacy of betrayal is drifted as they collide;
Ensuring their commendable chemistry makes a big stride.
Pursuing their heart with the rhythm of the flowing river;
Affection embraces them while their heartbeat shivers and quivers.
Love is their life and each other’s arms their abode;
Rocking and cradling each other – they stroll from road to road.
They are homeless – they require a shelter;
Summer is their contender as they swelter.
They are clueless walking aimlessly;
Adoring and fondling each other shamelessly.
The emancipated couple pursues the path of sincerity and loyalty;
Peace and harmony dominates their relationship – compassion treats their royalty.
I have been fascinated with footprints in the sand my entire life. I love to imagine who left them and where they were going and where they had been.
Yesterday, I was sitting across the sea shore and I saw a couple there walking along the shore leaving their foot prints behind; I was fascinated. There footprints were tracking them as they walk laughing and giggling as if they pay no heed to the world.
Thank you for your comment.
That’s funny, barbaramattio, me too.
And when you see them wash away… well, that just sends my head into a spin!
It’s a good topic, footprints in the sand,
because we all know,
footprints don’t come from nowhere.
Thank you for your comment and dropping by.
Have a good day.
footprints on sand – expectations in abundance, the art of dreaming or the peace of life !
Your comments strengthens the beauty of the poem – thank you for always sharing your heart without hesitation.

Thank you so very much. Thank you for being such a sincere reader yet I have no idea who you are – isn’t that hilarious?? You even knew my BIRTHDAY!!! So can I please know who is it ?
Thank you for being a loyal reader 🙂
Loads of love,
It is an inspirational poem about human nature.
I was inspired myself; life is lovely everyday! The surroundings and atmosphere gives us HOPE!!
Thank you for your comment Alex!!
Loads of blessings and love,
and how I wish to be there, and am the one, but here I am, reading the beautiful poem.
Thank you Kee. Yesterday was my birthday and it was a treat observing the love manifestation. Fortunately, my friends didn’t disturb me (as they were busy inquiring about my birthday cake) when I took the pad out and started writing – I was done in 10 minutes and after 10 minutes I could still see them! Life is lovely!!
Happy Birthday dear Naima! A little quiet corner is sometimes what we need to write, and appreciate the Love and the World. Wish you have an enjoyable and happy time with your friends, and family!
Yes, Life is wonderful!
Yeah, I did but moreover I kept on thinking about them. We just need to cherish life and it requires no reason at all. Life itself is a celebration – for every second we breathe and live!
Thank you for the wishes 🙂
Often, the appreciation of life, comes in the storm, during the storm, and after the storm, when we have a heart that can accept fear, the bad things that happened, the sadness, and then we will put down of them, and looking at the light that breaking the clouds apart. I think, everyone can be a hero in Life, if they survive with a good heart =)!
I cannot have a conclusion about myself yet.
Well, according to your saying, though you may not know what your conclusion is but because you are able to survive with a good heart, you are ultimately a HERO!!
ehem, not yet, still a long way to go for me. Anyway, I should not divert the attention to your poem. I just wish to see you cherish your life at every moment like I did when I was young, and keep writing the GOOD poem ><!
No, I mean the MOST BEAUTIFUL poem!
I am blessed to know you and share my world with you along with reading the way you praise Nature. Thank you fro the encouragement.
I liked the way of expression, “They are clueless walking aimlessly;
Adoring and fondling each other shamelessly.”
It serves a HOPE in their journey as well as life!\m/ 🙂
Awesome share as usual, Naima. 🙂
Yeah,it is all about hope that can make both Life and Love beautiful!!

Thank you so much dear Howard. I am glad you liked it.
Much love and blessings,
These remind me of the footprints that were fossilized in volcanic ash and preserved for thousands of years. They evoked emotions in me that I still cannot identify. Three sets, a man, woman, and child. A family long gone before we were even fully human. Yet they were our ancestors.
This is one of the very best comments ya have ever come up with Cranky so Congratulations!! 🙂

Awww.. thank you so much lovely!!
The purity of love always engages a path all its own, where influences are placed to the side as two become one, that no other can come between, life is your stage and you are able to set true blessings along the way, no rituals, no rules, only the one that brings two together on a path into a sweet eternity of joy! Naima, your words have a life that ever sings from your heart…your wisdom is of an old soul, and will not lead you astray because of all you have already seen! Blessings and love to you always my sister!

There is so much to be said about footprints. One’s first thought would be footprints in the sand, usually at the beach. Reflecting on ‘footprints in the mud’ is a very unique perspective and touches on a totally different aspect. Very well-written and moving:>)

There is such a wonderful feeling of peace in the poem, as if the couples have found true peace and strength in each other. They have nothing they do not need anything. Thank you for sharing peace flows out of this poem.
You are right! In brief, they are free from all the crucial bans world put on as religion, tradition, culture and what not! They are free birds with a high flight!
Thank you for dropping by and leaving me with a lovely comment!
