I can't remember a more beautiful spring
The leaves budded on genteel whispers
The palest green
Growing to dark
I ached to walk near them
But my legs wouldn't carry me

The roaring tide called
I was able to dip my toes
That was heaven
Just one time
I so wanted more
But my legs wouldn't carry me

The paths in the forest once so easily hiked
I wonder if they miss my feet
Like I miss their root laden trails
Will I be here next spring?
I wanted to walk
But my legs wouldn't carry me

Don't mind me, I just have some dust in my eye.

My gosh Kali, just beautiful.
I am sure that the forest misses you and will think of your spirit often.

I have rivers in mine, it's okay. That was cathartic... I need to purge this sadness to make room for the healing.

If by "sweeping" you mean "locking people in..." then yes, he is probably sweeping the basement.


Well done Kali that was a beautiful piece.
I hope today finds you in decent spirits.

All days really, but the present especially.

Your legs are weak, but your spirit is strong. God Bless you Kali.

So thoughtful and spiritual-the mind is strong but the body is weak-we will all end up there at some point. Very deep.

Oh Kali, this touched me deeply! Those places are a part of you and you of them.
