Daily missive for Wednesday the 11th of January.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 11th of January.

There were footprints
In the sand
Alongside mine
Leading to the sea.
Small, finely laid
With care and caution
A momentary hesitation
Before disappearing
Into the glorious
Enveloping
Mesmeric pull
Of the ocean
Breaking gently
In a profusion of
Full fat whiteness
The most inviting
Of salted baths.
I danced in the swell
As the deep water
Breathed in and out
Laughing with the joy
Of a child.
Calling your name
Into the wind.
There were footprints
In the sand
Alongside mine
Leading to the sea…
They were not yours
I wished they were.
