Reasons to Walk

I walk for exercise and inspiration,

for health and maintenance, and for my moods,

I walk to be in nature  –  with trees and flowers and clouds,

to be part of my species – I join the walking crowds.


I walk because that’s what I do,

I walk to dream, to meditate, reflect and freely think,

I walk because it’s practical and easy to get from A to B,

I walk at dawn and dusk to know my immortality.


I walk and talk because it eases words,

I walk to hear the birds and feel the breeze,

I walk to laugh at squabbling crows and think philosophy

I walk because I live and love my life.
