My footsteps 

Tell the tale

Of where I have been

But not 

Where I am going 

As I stand still

With the sea at my feet

A bookmark is formed

Resting in place 

From a journey 

Gone by 

Time to take a moment

To breathe in 

The salty air

And curl my toes

In the wet sand 

A time to rejuvenate 

More steps ahead 

Uncertain where each

Will take me 

But these are my footsteps

My journey 

One that stretches endlessly

Along the water's edge
