;-) continuing Gillena's:

barefoot in the snow --
a man visited the lady
next door

(This is a true story, but he was not me!)

So few words, but so strong. A feeling of belonging, of being grounded.

That's it, exactly, jem. As I said when I first posted this, walking barefoot can be pretty intense for a city boy like me.

I can feel the throb of both hearts, Bill.

autumn leaves ...
will my hair turn black
again in spring?

But of course your ku was about feet.

I still prefer sand
beneath my feet
