Step Out davidplumb

By David Plumb

 

See a star, a simple bird

Feel your feet

Hold the moon in your palms

Make your own toys

 

You are the children

the violins, the strings

Let go the horns,

the drums

 

Walk the halls

the alleys, the steps

the avenues

Hold hands with friends

Walk the forest

The simple dawn

Say owl

hummingbird

and dog

 

Talk to rabbits and ants

grandmothers

and monkeys in the sky

Listen to their stories

and simple days

of cross word puzzles

scratch pads

leaves blowing

waiting for

waiting to

love the moment

that is you

 

Tomorrow beholds

sunflowers

rhubarb, eggs

maple syrup

Spring

 

Look at that tree

Watch it sway

Know the apple

tastes best if

tree veins freeze

 

You are the cloud

the magic wand

the simple walk

on this amazing

planet
