“Sacred Walking: a love poem to the earth”
Come my friend
My dear dear friend
Come walk with me a while.
My foot, my soul
Gently touching your shoulder.
Your quivering bird sounds penetrating my being.
A coolness of breath through nose and mouth
Opening – yes inviting forth my heart
To kiss the world anew, with laughter breaking forth all over,
Cascades of shimmering joy and meaning.
Come dear friend
Let us hold each other gently.You in me and I in thee
And let the paths of life walk through.
Brother sun and sister river sound
We are the pathways, reaching up to bless all tender feet,so tentative
so wanting deep to know their tread secure
Walking this path creating.
Pathing this . . .a walkway.
Creation,dancing all over.
Come my blessed,
Breathe with me the mystery of stillness.
Walking through the glades of light and shade
We offer beauty
Pouring forth continuous,
Nourishing the world.
