Walking on the beach

Can you even call this a walk?

It’s a stomp,

pursuit in motion,

but what are you in pursuit of?

Movement, it’s just moving to move…

Be gentle with yourself,

there’s a reason you learned to run,

for safety,

to save me,

anything but the stillness.

But it’s safe here,

and those are the old ways,

so take a stroll darling,

allow yourself to deeply exhale…

Let the dust settle from your tracks,

so you can see with clarity the path you just walked,

so you can stand here where you are

in stillness,

and really feel the moment,

this is living,

it’s not transitional…

it’s here for the long-haul,

it’s all that matters…
