spring walking

try walking slowly. very slowly.

place each foot carefully – softly spreading the sole of your foot

breathe out and drop your weight deeply into the ground – pause. the earth will greet you – it takes your weight gladly.

breathe in – lift up – move on – slowly. so slowly.

can you feel the rhythm of the earth and sunlight, rising and falling under your feet?

Primavera by Robin Robertson

The brimstone is back
in the woken hills of Tuscany,
passing the word
from speedwell to violet
wood anemone to celandine.
I could walk to you now
with Spring just ahead of me,
north over flat ground
at two miles an hour,
the sap moving with me,
under the rising
grass of the field
like a dragged magnet,
the lights of the flowers
coming on in waves
as I walked with the budburst
and the flushing of trees.
If I started now,
I could bring you the Spring
for your birthday.
