Back and Forth

A combination of restless mind and unhappy back had me do lots of walking, back and forth, throughout the day.

Each step
taking it slow,
welcoming the contact
with steady ground.

First the heel,
then the outer edge,
the ball of the foot,
and last, the toes.

Sucking up 
all the coolness 
from beneath.

A different take on the traditional practice of walking meditation. Different impetus. Same outcome of mind, calmed, and body, happy from no longer sitting.
