What do you see # 46 – Footprints in the sand

(For visually challenged reader, the image shows a person walking in a desert, dwarfed by huge sand dunes. A long line of their footsteps can be seen behind them)

The pleasure of seeing my footprints

Footprints in the sand from a distance

Distance from the vituperate world

World still with my existence

Each of us with ravelled story

Story that could be lull or playful

Playful with the swagger of my honey

Honey you’re so faithful

Carving of my name in the sand

Sand of life giving me clues

Clues which I can pinpoint

Pinpoint when I am feeling blues*

  • Loop Poetry is a poetry form created by Hellon. There are no restrictions on the number of stanzas nor on the syllable count for each line. In each stanza, the last word of the first line becomes the first word of line two, last word of line 2 becomes the first word of line 3, last word of line 3 becomes the first word of line 4. This is followed for each stanza. The rhyme scheme is abcb.

  1. You not only introduced Loop Poetry to me but you gave me a new favorite to write! I love repetition, which I mention to bloggers often, but I really like how this repeats the words. Thank you for sharing! And a very well written poem as welll!
