Walking with Sylvia

I took a walk today

Sometimes I sunk down into the mud

Sometimes I flew up among the trees

The earth became a part of me as I became a part of the whole

Earth wide, feet long, sunlight glinting in my eyes

The trees tall and swaying with long strands of moss

Every skyward look and earthbound glance

Served to bring my feet into the earth as I waltzed

And wondered in the wood

Symbolic pathways of my brain, forming

Long winding complicated mountain turns, foaming

Seamlessly and lazily down and up

Flying yet again in porous ground

Swimming in fragrant air, the distant

Sounds of cars and people and barking dogs

A backdrop in the small wooded oasis of my soul
