poet, artist
find the space
your place
outside the race
where mind goes empty
ego floats
to grace

go there every day
No matter what
every day
if only for a moment
Go there
Go there

There now.
Can you feel the earth? Her spinning rhythm?
Feel your strong and calloused feet
moving toward water like water
carrying her own back to family

Notice your own arrival at the place
with empty vessel
The dipping into water
The scooping up of another world
Notice your own return
with glowing face
supported on strong back and shoulders
dripping abundant life
for you
for beloved others
balanced on your small frame


You hold within you now
the strength of a thousand oceans
relax and feel the beat

in those perfect

dusty feet


girl’s feet
