Slightly to the right – poem by Ali Grimshaw


One step to the right

not a stretch, just a nudge

shift of weight to the side.

One step away, between

worry and what if?

Landscape of exhaustion

or a horizon of possibility.

Not a marathon, nothing to train for,

just one



Get your shoes on.

wonder is waiting.

  1. Wonderfully written words Ali! It reminds me about the natural healing process actually. It is one step at a time and not overly complicated but profound. Just like this post! Love it. Going to re-blog it so others can share in your wisdom.
