Footsteps to Ruin--By Jan Oskar Hansen--Portugal

Footsteps to Ruin

This spring makes my heart beat faster
went for a walk saw a verdant field sprinkled
with xanthous flowers nodding
in the mild zephyr
I must take a photo.
Walked onto the field to find the prettiest ones
looked behind me, my heavy boots
had ruined lesser beauties

Jan Oskar Hansen is a published poet from Portugal.


  1. Thanks, Jan, your poem is not one of the lesser beauties....

  3. Jan, I feel sad when I find I have stepped on something and it will probably die. There is such beauty in the world, and not just of the obvious kind. Your lovely poem brings this to light in a moving way! Blessings, Connie
