Pair of gloves

Known for its relaxing qualities

I come here to a place to find tranquillity and healing

From preparing the soil to the joy of harvesting

All of which aids, supports, and prompts me

In my quest

To reduce the risk for obesity, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes

This moderate activity

Makes me feel good

Makes me feel safe

Makes me think

Something I have not done in a long time

I followed others for so long

Until I stopped following

Until I slowed down, followed the path I wanted and

Reached out to a community

That existed, that quietly carried on

That welcomed me with open arms, words of advice and encouragement

They did not judge

They did not shout

Just passed me the pair of gloves

To start
