Thursday photo #prompt: Footprints #writephoto

If you want to participate, here’s the link:

I wonder at ancient footprints.  

Did their makers dream of

flying to the stars?


Did they worship distant gods

or wander endlessly

looking for a home?


If my footprints, pressed in sand,

live for a million years

what will find them?


Will we be a civilization lost

known only by our bones

not by our hearts?


I imagine ants three feet tall

burying a truth too painful…

such a human thing to do.
