THE RUNNER’S ODE

I RUN upon soft
tender ground
Each fall of my foot
the beat of my heart

Touching the rhythm
of life’s cycle
— much swifter
makes my stride

I run from there
to here and back
lifting my legs
— Mother Earth moves

To tears and some
maybe more than most
And I run and run
and never look back

Always forward
— toward the light
of my brilliant day
is the runner’s ode
