Line in the sand

The glistening line in the sand where the wave ended on shore is a curved line he crossed to simply etch his footprints in the foam.
I only allowed him and the egrets to cross that line
before their feet dampened with regrets.
Do I regret the footprints he left?
How could I?
One day, the prints will disappear and all I will see are the egrets again. But this time, they will be soaring without worry of lines in the sand.
