The Beauty of Movement

Whether it be the cloud

that drifts white across

the blue sky or

sea foam breaking

from its watery belt,

clear clean droplets carried

on the breeze.

There is a beauty in movement

that moves me.

Whether it be thistledown

floating on thin air or

trees, shadow dancing

on a wintery eve.

There is a beauty in movement

that moves me.

Whether it be tear salted lake waters

lapping stony silent, gravelly shores

or the flights of dandelion

fed bumble bees.

There is a beauty in movement

that moves me.

Whether it be a bow riding

quickly over the strings

or aged, worn fingers

fumbling in a button box.

There is a beauty in movement

that moves me.

Whether it be the nodding heads

of gentle agreement or

the sound of free footfall

on a mountain road.

There is a beauty in movement

that moves me.

Whether it be a cold clean breath

expelled on a frosty morning or

a bird on the wing in the midday sky.

There is a beauty in movement

that moves me.

Whether it be the peals

of childish delight

landing at my feet or

the sighs of love lost.

There is a beauty in movement

that moves me.

Whether it be the hidden rustles

in the undergrowth or

sounds of a different distant engine,

There is a beauty in movement

that moves me.

As the long day moves,

once again into night with stars

glimmering in the dark sky

aligned with the searching of my soul.

As the house is quietening down

to a unruffled stillness.

I hear our stream,

moving swiftly along.

There is a beauty in movement that moves me.
