Barefoot in Maine

By Nancy Ann Schaefer

 

All pain and pleasure is where you put your attention.

—Deepak Chopra

Walking

along pale pebbled beach

cool saline breeze

lone seagull screams

blue waves

ripple coastline —

all blur into now

under sun-high sky

 

Barefoot

over clastic rock:

pain

with each step forward

pleasure

with each step lifted

 

This up-down rhythm

— superb duet

this journey

of moments

already arrived.
