The Run

Starlight

moonlight

sunlight

all the light

that fills me

centers me

runs me

until

I am

running

to stand

still

my still

center

moving

until

my body sings

until

my body

collapses

its worry

into moving

feet

gliding

over

city

sidewalks

pounding

out a rhythm

a traction

to my life

a reason

for being

to fly

to fly

into the light

to take

these

daily sufferings

and fling

them

through stretched

out body

into the winter

air

lighting a fire

to my fury

that burns

into love

love for this life

this grace

called running

called family

called friends

called love

this life

oh this life

is nothing

and everything

as I smash

the hours

beneath my feet

into something

that matters

the release

into bliss

the release

into running feet

the gratitude

oh joyful

hour

oh minutes of running

I thank you

for thanking me

with your sweaty

sweaty

1-2-3-4

pace time

you are mine

I am yours

we are

each others’

everything

it is in me

and I am in it

like the word

the run breathes

and I can breathe

deeply into this life

I live

this nothing

and everything

this waking

and sleeping

these moments

of grace

starlight

moonlight

sunlight
