Missed Steps

June 28, 2017  •  14 Comments


I forgot my Fitbit 
Oh this mourn
Steps wasted 
Throughout the day
Heavy steps 
Up down stairs
Accumulate floors 
All for nothing 
Steps in thousands 
Slipped slided away

Late in the day
Steps steps need recording
Out to the bank
Dusk turned to darkness
Up down ramps
Cut into levees
A waxing quarter moon
Wanes in cloudless sky
Only smoke from distant fires
Color the horizon

Heavy treads
Boots scrape on gravely trail
Steps more steps
You need more steps
Press on into
The falling gloom
“Almost there!”
Fibit cheers
“Get 2,453 steps more…”
Only a mile to go
Oh dear

Turned around 
At seven thousand
Headed Back 
On dim lit trail
Owls swooped past
Coyotes yipped
Beavers slapped the water
Get those steps
No matter what
All hail to the fitness
