From tiny beginnings to oceans I discovered the world in words

11 days into October

firmly touch the earth
everytime to take a step
your time here is brief

bubbles holding rainbows burst
blink and the colours escape

  1. Love this Elaine. Beautiful imagery and sentiment. Lovely.

  2. ‘your time here is brief’ reminds me of mortal man; we are but sojourners on this earth. Everything else is grace. 🙂

  3. So often, I think the only good place to go barefoot is on sand…
    yet to touch the earth…that connected-ness. I think that is a good part of Shinrin Yoku.
    I did look that up – There is u-tube video. 🙂

    Hugs, Jules

  4. I so appreciate the imagery in the last two lines…wonderful.
