Lately – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Word of the Day – Waddle

“My eyes were in my feet.”   Nan Shepherd


As a child she’d waddled ungainly
the floors called home,
till that time of walking,
waking and leaving,
she’d sashayed for a while so svelte
till she’d entranced and captured another,
then in longer years unbridled in
unconscious freedoms
eventually returning to the beginning,
and lately she’s been waddling again
those floors called home.
