We walk a lot- -all of us
through each others lives
                  each others dreams
                                           nightmares
through experiences like water- –
cleansing

Many miles we walk
in
  and out
               always
through ragged, shining days
sunny, cloudy, misty haze
– -intimate, lonely nights
star lit, snow lit, city lights

Sometimes we walk in
stay a while- -love
cradles us- -we
take refuge in it
loving

Sometimes turning our
backs- -walking away
continually walking
everywhere, anywhere
– -can’t stay
we walk a lot- -all of us
always coming- -going
within each other’s instances
of death- –
sighing, crying, glorifying
life

Holes in our moccasins
we walk- -different paces
changing faces- -never alone
