"...a beginning is the greatest thing of all." -George MacDonald, At the Back of the North Wind
Here is where you can sit,
shuffle pebbles under your bare feet,
poke the airy water
pull up twigs by their roots
and then move on to the next rest point
It will be
a heavy hike
but you will enjoy
the flowers that litter the way.
If you breathe
and let today be just a day.
