There are all sorts of movements:

you can walk, jog, run

journeying on a path beyond.

The seasoned traveller,

the displaced refugee.


Watching a bird fly

driving along trees scattered by,

the movement of the mind’s emotions:

music in the air

or the soul’s movement discovered in poetry.

All is movement.


Forgiveness is the moving forward of the heart

accepting it is walking through a door

a clean slate is the movement of the hand

writing your story

among many other slates

stashed in a cupboard

with a hand closing its door.
