Stepping Lightly

We walk on air every day,
the weight of our bodies
pressing our luck, pressing
through time and space,
each step a choice
to stomp a heavy foot upon
tender green fragility, or
with our wings of diplomacy
spread wide, float along
the line of life we’re given,
crushing nothing in our path.
