Your precious foot prints in the sand of time
visible for a short while on the shores of life
small first, innocently running toward the future
then bigger, walking the trail of everyday routine
finally heavier with keen observation, purpose
they remain to be seen, followed by others
admired, learned from and treasured
until the waves of infinity gently erase them
sparkling and clear, the shores of life remain.
Life is full of surprises.
What do you mean?
I mean it’s sunny and suddenly it might rain.
What’s so surprising about that?
We really don’t know when it’s gonna rain and from which direction.
Oh, we just need a safe tree to protect us from getting soaked.
I agree. I can show you right away where to find one.
To be really safe we also need to build trust among other big birds.
There might be some hawks around, but we can manage them.
It’s not that simple. How do you plan to do that?
We’ll just sit higher and project ourselves bigger than them.
That won’t fly. I have a better route of going about it.
Let’s both find a safe tree and see where the other birds gather.
Fine, it’ll be their pick. Peace – rain or shine.
