Poetry quickfire


The Push of the Walk


Ninety seconds into the briskness
my mind won't admit the weary.

Possessive of my solo jaunt
I want to wrestle that fatigue.

February air accelerates the stride
as I ignore the tired ache.

Energy flows through the mighty soul
my body concedes to the expected.

I'm literally off to the bus stop right now! Do you see how much I love that little walk?

On want and wills suppliment.

Seed me in sediment.

This is great Kelly! Right from the title through the February air, and that flowing energy.

And yes. I do see! :)

I used to have to walk 4 blocks from my car to my cubicle every day. I miss that walk...

The cold air will do you good-not! We just came inside after shoveling some more and I'm pleased to report that a snowblower is in our future... I hope you're not getting what we're getting!
