A Poem a Day (59): Footsteps

A five-minute poem for you... 


it’s the footsteps that remind me
in the snow
ever falling in dancing clusters

it makes me think
remember, recount
the numerous events
ending in this day

where the ocean roars
carrying me ever forward
I can begin again
just here

in this endless drift
of petals swimming
towards a darkening
only I can see

and so I exist
where these footsteps tell me
I am walking backwards 
into my past
