I Walk

Today I walked
in the steps of a year ago
moving across 
a plain through the past
feet displacing
dew droplets from blades
memories cut
deep through the present
dark remnants 
personal pain oozing through
healing wounds
welts burying sanguine sadness.


My treading 
left temporary black marks on the
silver patina 
covering the grazed green
sad thoughts 
like shadows of the trees
dark forms 
reaching far when light is low 
my movement 
walked away shadows of pain 
into the light
presence my present at peace.
