Movement in Light

Breathing With Trees, The Novelist’s Peace
Photo and poem by Cynthia Sharp

I stretch into morning,

my own dreams and voice,

free of extraneous clutter,

pausing with pine and cool air, 

engage in the yoga and walks and exercise, 

we are allowed every day,

remove the barriers,

that never belonged 

between the universe and our gifts,

write with trees,

a miracle worth pursuing

for all the beauty 

our fragile selves can find, 

stand in the radiance of evening

where quiet meets health

and energy rests 

in spring sunsets wrapping the earth,

traversing time, 

as all is renewed,

the moon 

by my side

whether or not

I ever finish,

starlight on the wind.
