Each Step

I hope I always “step” as described here.

Each Step

Each step should be this way.

Steps to fetch the mail,
up a dirt road where stones rise
from the earth as turtles rise
from the water,
smooth shells floating
a top a pond’s murky icing.

Steps into the kitchen,
off the couch from a nap,
to nab the last sugared bun

or a gentle step over
the cat sprawled
on a swatch of sun
splayed beneath the window
near her bowl of treats;

each stride – a toddler’s excited totter
toward a playground,
where a tall slide seems to graze
in the tall grass like a dinosaur
waiting for a new heart
to mount its back and play.
