in between there are footprints in the sand

a pause\ a moving on\ a reaching and holding hand

sometimes there is crying, laughter and some confusion\ while trying to understand\ at different stops\ a look ahead and behind,\ creates the wonderment at the span.

Just as these footprints in the sand\ show where feet have trodden\ so too, the journey has many spots.

the challenge, is to explore and know this beach before a\ spring tide comes a washing in and\ all the footprints are gone!

then you be in heaven looking around\ hugging and laughing with others who\ once left their footprints in the sand!
