This post, reblogged from eMORFS, featuring photos by Mohammed Babu/Solent News, shows that you really ARE what you eat! I love the visual.

o let me be not profound

Foot on pavement

o let me be not profound,

but sure and grounded

all around,

sentient as i walk the street,

knowing where i put my feet.

outdoor backstroke

Clouds

seasonless california february:
almost warm, but
a grizzled hint of chill ingratiates
the lukewarm clear water.
still, you quiver once on immersion.

backstroking
gliding like a fish,
effortless arcs,
one sinewy arm
rotating
after the other,
feet ripple like happy mermaid fins

gray-washed, above
airplane height
a dance of crows and sparrows
black against bright billows
swoop and hover

the air and water welcome you
as family
as you breathe
and you are free
