after the floodwaters dry—

  1. Brilliant. I love the mystery of it.

  2. It’s always odd, the random things left behind; but what’s more mysterious than a single footprint?

    Solid work. Great photo.

  3. I often look at the footprints I leave whenever I walk by the seashore. I don’t know but they make me feel one with nature. Again, visiting from SOCC. 🙂


  4. Great detail in the shot. That footprint could mean so many different things. Have a great day!

  5. What a single foot print in the sand can mean is awesome. Well done.


  6. A wonderful haiku. So full of mystery.

  7. Question of the past that may stand the test of time…long after the prints are washed away. Great Haiku.

  8. lovely poem – so much said

  9. makes me think of ancient footprints discovered by us today

  10. Question #1 that your single footprint has me asking is – What is the message that is imprinted by this single footprint? I would like to think that it is a message for all mankind…are we prepared to risk having all footprints erased?
    Your haiku makes the readers ponder way beyond that image…

  11. Very cool image. Great post.

  12. I like the poem and image….so many questions….why there was only one footprint…why of all things it remained…

  13. yes.. and the one word falling out of many mouths would be “who” i am sure!

  14. Only ten thousand? 🙂

    I really like this one.
