A summer pilgrim
slogging through waves of white sand—
how aloof she seems!
~~ ~~ ~~
temporary waves
surging through the summer sand
only to subside
~~ ~~ ~~
waves of summer sand
erasing the pilgrim’s path
one whole day and night

  1. how quickly our work and pilgrimages can be undone – by humans and nature it seems..each new verse was like a new wave carrying a thought to shore…

  2. wave after wave; have a good Wednesday

    much love…

  3. I can imagine the pilgrim well, MMT. Maybe she’s just tired.

    when taken away by wind
    mystery of sand
