Motion at Play

The joy 
of movement 
brings us glee.
It wiggles, 
sets us free.

lifting high
on tiptoes
reaching for the sky.

Turn around.
Touch your knees.
Wrinkle your nose.
Fake a sneeze.
Pose your body 
in deep freeze.
Energy moving
through your feet,
roots of a tree
grounding deep.

Blow air out
your mouth or nose.
Breathe it in
to smell a rose.
Put your hands 
upon your heart.
Take a breath
and say “restart”.

Dance around,
having fun.
Pretend your day
has just begun.
helps you find a way,
to move frustration 
into play.
