Boot Prints In The Dust

afternoon heat
the coolness in the shadow
of the menhir

a breeze ripples the grass
as the clouds drift by

a field walled
by loosely stacked rocks
harvested from the field

at the brook

he picks the smoothest stones
for his gold fish bowl

the worn out steps
of the castle's stairs

the crackling voice
"one giant leap for mankind"

boot prints in the dust
