Sands of Time… #writephoto.


Step by step

On the sands of time

I left my footprints

Going forward to towards the shores

I see the sea whirling, waiting

Standing on the tip of shores, let my feet be swept

by the wavering waters

maybe then I will forget

the pains of walking on the sands of time

waiting for my time to come

To shine brightly like the sun

kissing the waters of the sea

showing a beautiful reflection

of my travelling bliss on

the sands of time.

Let’s take a long walk

by the seaside

watching the birds flying

chirping, and making melodies

while the earth mingle with the waters

and the clouds a witness to natures intermingle

on the sands of time, where I left my footprints.

    This is a beautiful poem.


  2. Your words took me on a journey a return to the Motherland. A reversal of the Crossing that took us away from Mother Africa. I often think of my ancestors who did not make it across the Middle Passage. The Souls who lay waiting in the Ocean or who perhaps flew to Freedom in Heaven rather than slavery in a strange and evil land.

      1. Thanks. Your post is introspective. Brought to mind the connection between Africans and African Americans.
