Running Shoes

I learnt to run again. 


Different body, shaped by time and a full life.

Feet heavy and legs wobbly.

Time for finding my feet, gradually these muscles remember.


Movement recollects.


They work to familiar pace –

carry me through community.

Spot neighbours on pavements and friends through window panes.


I’m running for me, for myself.

Though, I’ll compare in trepidation

A minor flirtation…


…With running shoes.
