Green footfalls

Motionless bodies
Fluid,motivating words brining movement to limbs and legs

A gray unraveling of the day
Devoid of the sun’s flames
Bodies strained and reaching

A kiss
Cadenced gait casting green shadowed footprints

Answering,responding-a patter of footsteps trailing to a halt
Green shoots emerging from the magic of dance
The unbearable kindness of naked feet

Aimless wanderings across the past of tomorrow
The present
The future yet to arrive.
