Walk

by Angela Hoffman

The simplicity of the deliberate movement;
one foot in front of the other, not passive
the physicality of it mindful, intentional, despite
the unknown path. 

That’s not to say you may be weary, expectant
pregnant with surrender.
No longer full of your own demands, desires
attentive, alert, alive
your head is up, eyes, and ears on the skies
adventing an arrival, a coming
knowing all will be well
knowing everything already is well. 

Angela Hoffman’s poetry collections include Resurrection Lily (Kelsay Books, 2022) and Olly Olly Oxen Free (forthcoming, Kelsay Books, 2023). She placed third in the WFOP Kay Saunders Memorial Emerging Poet, 2022. Her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Solitary Plover, Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets’ Museletter and Calendar, Agape Review, Verse-Virtual, Visual Verse, Your Daily Poem, Writing In A Woman’s Voice, Moss Piglet, Amethyst Review, Orchards Poetry Journal, POETiCA REViEW, Wilda Morris’s Poetry Challenge, and Lothlorien Poetry Journal. She has written a poem a day since the start of the pandemic. Angela lives in rural Wisconsin.
