Inertia

Updated on July 27, 2010

Go for that walk

Maybe you will get

to see your child run

like time

across an open field


Go for that walk

There may be a baby deer

waiting along the edge

of the gravel path


Go and hold hands

with your husband,

link arms

Stop to watch the hawk

perched in the Aspen and

listen to the panicked squawks

from the smaller birds


Go for that walk

Even if you are tired

Even if there are still

dishes to be done


Go for that walk

especially when you’d

rather write


Go for that walk

Join them so you can

be captured too

Join them so that the

picture in their minds

will hold more

than just your silhouette
