Light and Easy

Written on a dark COVID day. By Morgan Myers, LPC

Light and easy

Simple and fine

Come out with me

The glory is mine.

Even on a bad day

All the pain stings

Pressing heel to the ground

The lightness is brings.

What happened to the ache

that settled in there?

Landlocked and muddy

to birds of the air.

What seemed sown on

A ring in my skin

was marring my back

and tattooing in.

What do I carry?

I’ve lost count now.

Assuming it’s mine

I throw on the pile.

Hunching over

pulling apart

Ripping the seams

I get a new start.

Eyelids are lifting,

spine’s column can flex

Glorious light foot

A hopeful deep breath.
