SINGLE STEP 365 ~ DAY 152 ~ POEM

DAY 152

It takes a heart 

to rescue a creature in need

To lift it gently 

Through fear and aversion

Out of cold water

It’s body shivering

Fear and exhaustion

eyes close 

relief, respite, rest

To know life hangs in the balance 

and a small act of kindness saved 

instead of destroyed

If only for a moment

It only takes a heart

POEM

There was a time 

I thought I was strong

My armor thins

Weakens with age

Dispersion and assaults 

Although distant and silent

Rage

A storm on the horizon

Days count down

Eyes downcast 

Flesh gives way

To final rest

Void of wrongs

DAY 126

CHILL

Crisp air pushes through closed doors and windows

goose flesh rises, revives, reminds

the mind to be careful about what it lets in.

DAY 125

MIST

Mist so light it feels like silk,

       sways on chinese maple and pine.

Pauses long enough to stop time.

In the mist I long to stay,

       yet always I fight to be still.
