Denied Impetus

as days tread

steadily on

in uneasy repetition

of denied impetus;

when the urge to move,

to get up and go,

builds with the warmth of

the strengthening sun;

as a longing to

explore new places,

to tread new ground,

to see new faces,



the time will come



for now,

plant your feet

and connect with the ground

beneath your soles,

find patience in

the changing of the seasons,

see the first

unfurling blooms of the

snowdrops in the woods,

and of the crocuses that

flourish in parks and



for the time will come
