Fine Footsoaking!

In Poems on July 6, 2010 at 3:27 pm

The clock struck four, ready to go!
Footsoak time, water for the soul!
Filled the tubs with water and salt
Jars filled to wash of the dirt!
Sixteen tubs ready awaiting
For little feet, realized and blessed!
Half past four struck the clock,
Hit by little feet the count of sixteen!
Ready and sure the children were
Said their prayers and feet they plunged!
Laid on ground easy and sure
Wanted to have more fun to clear!
Suddenly the blue skies turned so dark
Roared the winds , the verdict was stark!
Rain poured in, soft jewels of pearls!
Wind gentled down to soothe the worries!
Drenched the bodies became so pure,
As water fell into the small hands dear!
Giggled, laughed, squealed they did!
Loud and clear their laughter rang through the woods
Mother delighted poured more on their hoods!
In delight they wriggled away from their coats
Let the water flow more into their hearts!
Drenched they were to their souls’ content
Prayed hard for innocence to be strengthened
Blue skies shone with the rays so bright
Fragrance of earth spread into the air
Purity and innocence filled the pores
Fulfilled and content were the realized souls..
