Red and Green

Myself walking
Down a narrow path.
Each step
Threatening. Red. Warning.
Breath tightens
For fear I need to pass
Someone walking.
There is no space
To become the Priest or Levite
Who is now part of me.

My pace quickens
Into the open space.
Each step
Unrestricted. Green. Released.
Breath evens
When I feel myself
Become myself.
In the fresh air
In the moments of spring
Which are still most of me.
