Footprints

After the rain or on sea shore
I like to pursue the footprints
The scattered paintings, sometimes fade
Make the surface a faded collage.

The stamps of unknown mankind
Offered me a place amongst the crowd
But, I felt the loneliness of the moon
Who stands alone among the stars.

The collage swallows me, I feel
Footprints re form as grooves
I tried to step forward in vain
To leave footprints of mine.

Am I afraid of my footprints?
Let me make a pair of my own.

നന്നായിരിക്കുന്നു
തീർച്ചയായും നീ നിന്റെ കാലടികളെ ഭയപ്പെടണം
കാരണം ആ കാൾപാടുകളായിരിക്കും പിന്നാലെ വരുന്നവർ
പിന്തുടരുന്നത്

"But, I felt the loneliness of the moon
Who stands alone among the stars."
Beautiful lines...True that we stand apart in the crowd like a moon among stars...
One should mark his footprints wherever he goes because that is the only evidence for our journey...May many more people follow your footprints....

Dear Aji,
Good Morning!
Your post reminded me my childhod.I used to follow the footsteps of the ones who walked ahead,to recah the destination faster.
Amma taught us the beautiful story of God's footprints!
I try or started trying to leave the footprints of my own!tim eis too short;but I have a great will.
Within an hour I am leaving for Trichur.By the way,my best friend has the same template for his blog just with slight added image.:)
keep writing.there are rainbows,birds and flowers too.smile and cause a smile.
Wishing you a wonderful week ahead,
Sasneham,
Anu

its just coincidence that both of us have the same title for a poem conveying different emotions:) good work keep it up:) for me foot prints highlight the fact that the walk has only begun and there is a long way 2 go...i've never followed footprints...

But, I felt the loneliness of the moon
Who stands alone among the stars.

those lines touched my heart...
