#87 (listen to your feet)

feet

listen

to your feet

as they  carry

your weight around

the world

let them get

wet

from time to time

stretch your bare soles

to the sun

let them drink

some light

as they

so rarely

find the pleasure

to be touched

by that kind of warmth


honour

two companions

that never leave

but lead you

through any hardship

masterpieces

of flesh, bone and tendons


firmly

stand your ground

or dance around

on a whim

flex and bend

prance

and flounce

perhaps

you even wish 

to bounce

trust your feet

they know the ground

earthsong their steady

escort
