in recognition of what moves below

I admire the ladies in robes,
how each graceful step
pushes leg by leg
its severe attention to the floor,
quietly evading gravity long stride
from ball of foot to ball of foot to
fabric gathering like inflorescences
and falling back, women’s ankles
strong and genuine, humble
under the effort to move
forward in deep color.
