As our feet move forward
As they carry us to our next destination
As they move our souls forward to the deepest desires of the longing of our hearts
We nurture them
Letting our feet dance our mysteries into the darkness
Letting our feet dabble in the misty cool water of the ocean at sunrise
They receive the unseen signals and healing from the earth while we gaze lazily at the pastel blue hued sky
As they tingle and tickle while carrying us forward, let us never forget the gifts of healing our feet give us.
May we be reminded of the first time our soles touched sand, or felt the caress of a lover, or sloshed about in the mud.
May we remember the infinite ways of travel they have carried us forward.
May we remember the times our feet have kept us steady when we wanted to crumble.
Grounded to the earth they remain
Connected to the centre of the universe they help us continue to be
In moments of grief they can take us to a space we need to be, and heal us
Purely through their connection
Take those shoes off
Walk barefoot on the earth
It’s time to say thank you
Pitter patter, tip toe, stomp stomp
No matter how the sound may ring in our ears
May we remember all the times our feet have carried us
And so I say
