“The Way I Walk” by Dorothy Moffatt

The way I walk
I see my mother walking
My feet secure and firm upon the ground.

The way I talk
I hear my daughter talking
And hear my mother’s echo in the sound.

The way she thought
I find myself now thinking
The generations linking in a firm continuum of mind.

The bridge of immortality
I’m walking
The voice before me echoing behind.
