Footprints Of This Lone Walker.. - Poem by DEEP DARK SOUL POET

Footprints of this lone walker
Reflecting many deep thoughts
Casting an imprint of my life
In the single trail left behind.

Thoughts, as many as grains of sand
Swirling around about my feet
The Ocean's lament, ongoing
As are the thoughts in my head.

Look up and beyond, take note
How wonderful the horizon out far
Gulls taking to the air, circling
The Ocean reflecting a sky of blue.

They are free and their spirits soar
So do not look down and contemplate
Cast thoughts to the wind, be free
Life will be a constant debate.

A beautiful day, a gift from above
Wind driven white horses appear
And the Ocean keeps saying;
'Look into me, feel the movement, be alive.'

Waves tenderly lapping the shore
Against the rocks they show their strength
A shimmering spray of diamonds sent
Into the air they shine, showing no lament.

Footprints of a solitary walker
Reflecting a slower pace
Face turned to the Ocean, eyes seeing
Yes, why dwell on the past, it's done and gone.

In life's book it is written.
What will be will be
Feel the wind, smell the air, hear the sounds
Mans life will pass but the Ocean goes on...
