Morning Constitutional

the peaceful amble
before the day really wakes
bringing prospective
a time to contemplate
leaving the weight of the world

let thoughts drift in
and drift out
those that are stuck
wrap up
and tuck away
no lingering
on what if’s
situations will run their course
whether or not engaged

focus on your step
beware of your breath
forward is the direction
there is no hesitation
a step
a step
a step
and another
set a pace
that eases you into
your the day
