A walk took me yesterday.
It carried me with it wherever it went.
It danced in the late afternoon sunlight.
I had to learn the steps
And try to tread lightly
It was a space walk on Earth Day.
I was taken by the path
Taken with its movement
Drawn to its contours.
I was helped along the way
to reflect on what it is
to have a path choose you.
And made to imagine
The distance and time remaining
for this world's days, here on earth.
