Freewheeling

Being
a human being
is hard work.

All that seeing and hearing and touching
and smelling and walking and running
and talking and thinking and worrying
and loving and hating and waiting.

Hard work.

Sometimes we need to freewheel
To take our feet off the pedals and
float
downhill
legs out
not fearing the crash at the bottom.

Ordinary days are what we need.
Days when we do what we want to do;
Be where we want to be;
Sit on the grass and not look at the woods burning all around us.
