alone I walk

alone I walk over a silent beach
where once we played as children
our footprints are no longer here
but I keep looking for them still
each of our childhood days I find
in sand and salty memories in time

  1. Wow. What a beautiful beach. I can feel the memories. Lovely poem Ina.

    • Hi walter, thank you very much! The beach is completely deserted this time of year and it is great for doing some thinking πŸ™‚

  2. Beautiful nostalgic writing dear friend
    Alas our childhood fades as we face the setting sun
    But memorys linger in our hearts eternal
    Well written Ina
    Emu aka Ian

    • Hi Ian thank you very much! πŸ™‚ The good thing is, walking there also means making new memories πŸ™‚

  3. Childhood at the beach – lovely memories. But it DOES look cold!

  4. A book of pictures and poems is surely to come πŸ™‚


  5. Hi Ina,
    happy New Year. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have somewhat different footprints, but that is the beauty of being a human and a poet, yes?

  6. Your poem, as we always hope our poems do, leaves memorable foortprints in hearts besides your own.

    There’s nothing like the empty (not really!) expanse of a beach–as in the photograph and your reflection.–before us…

  7. Thank you very much bardess for this wonderful comment. πŸ™‚
