A Soft Tread in Soft Sand>
  <figcaption><i>A Soft Tread in Soft Sand <b>Source:</b></i></figcaption>

<p>At first, skelter, pell-mell plunge of foot.<br />
Sinking into ooze, splattering mud about.<br />
Heavy foot - surging, clambering, wanting climax and fruition.<br />
Leaving a footprint trail, bogged in mud.<br />
A legacy of heavy haste.</p>

<p>Tread softly now the rush has quelled.<br />
With steps more measured, gait of purpose.<br />
With no footprints left to scar desire.<br />
With lightness of touch, absorbing rebound.<br />
With steps adroit, patient, poised, balanced.</p>

<p>Time has slowed,<br />
So, tread softly now.</p>
