A daily walk has been a part of my life
for as long as I can recall,
whether it was school to home for lunch, then back
or evenings with OH, or maybe, once, a pub crawl.
People like me who face screens til we’re bored
know THAT life will make OUR life too short.
Doctor says “you’re too fat B’y so get out some more,”
but I admit that it’s far more than just sport.
Through paths trodden by those who long ago came this way
removes what get’s stuck in the craw,
shoos away traces of ego that creep in through the day
while filling the soul with true awe.
And best of all, it can be claimed,
are times you walk with co-workers and friends;
whether for pleasure or work, it’s always the same
the memories and effect are stronger, they transcend.
Think back on the best ideas and goals
and the times when things started to make sense.
Perhaps it happened while you were out for a stroll
and exchanging ideas with friends.
Spring is not too far away, is it? 🙂
