Mid-Afternoon Walk


This heat that wraps my body close

beneath a sky Ive dreamed for months

the pounding of my feet upon the walk

the feel of my weight upon my foot

Ah!  Its great to be alive today


The air that freely fills my lungs within

clothes that press against my chest

the glory of green leaves at last in their relief

against the wondrous blue at infinitys edge

Ah!  Its great to be alive today


Blood pounds hot in my veins again

my muscles twist and flex

this body works its working well

as I in walking experience life

Ah!  Its great to be alive today
