This poem has been submitted as a response to One Stop Poetry Challenge

A wonderful picture has been given as a prompt to write on.


Footprints on Sand Dune. Picture by "Iquanyin Moon"


Footprints on sand are as ephemeral as,

A touch of stormy and ever flowing wind,

A water drop standing on a lotus leaf,

And a acquaintance of a person real kind


But here it is different I don’t know why,

Instead of vanishing they are embossed,

As if he is walking down below the ground,

Just like the surface line has been crossed


Is it magnifying the character of the person?

Who would go the distance for his love,

Will travel the lengths to convey the message,

Just like a message carrying white dove.

    “A water drop standing on a lotus leaf” Nice way to incorporate water into it! Your poem has a questioning, journey aspect; and the description of embossed footprints is apt and well said. Great challenge response!


    • Thank You Dustus 🙂 You made my day by commenting 🙂 Really appreciate it.
      As said to Claudia, the whole poem came to my mind just because of that embossing and walking below the surface level thought 🙂
