Walking... by kelly klein


When I am aware of walking,
noticing my feet as they touch the earth,
  I come back to where I am
...not where I am going.

I concentrate on each step,
intentionally leaving a footprint of joy and compassion for all beings that may come this way. 

I imagine a procession of cows meandering down the path, 
a puppy chasing a bird, 
or a woman carrying a load of fresh grass in the basket on her back.

As they step here and touch upon this footprint, may they be filled with quiet peace, 
and be relieved of all suffering. 

It opens my heart and unites me in a new way.
