Reposting one of my early poems in honor of our newest family member, my granddaughter, who is one week old today 🙂


 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.

    1. It’s lovely for the parents, they get more sleep. I don’t remember getting much at all when her dad was small 🙂

  1. Beautiful words – congratulations on the new granddaughter – may your home be filled with much laughter and good memories! 🙂

Would love to hear your thoughts!
