Each step
Of shattered dreams
Of struggle and glory
Of the dove’s hooos
Of the wolf’s howl
The birth of a life
The death of a species
The embrace of love
The sorrow of loss
The rising of the sun
The shadows of the moon
A day in the woods
A Forrest demolished
A return of a friend
A terror in the tabloid
A hummingbird singing
A man crying
A kiss from yr beloved
A betrayal of trust
A flower pushing through
The barriers of life
The soft sensations
Of my feet Upon the wet grass
Soil in my toes
Each step
