Teach a Pebble how to Worry

Reverse.

Back your truck
from the grave
move towards the cradle.

Skip lightly,
gaily,
as you follow
the minutiae of life.

Linger on happiness if you like;
fickle that you are.

Lay down in sorrow
if that would suit you better.

It matters not.

It ends.

It begins.

The cycle
reverses.

Park it.
Sit.
Be free.

Teach a pebble how to worry.

Then laugh.

  1. This spoke to me today. I haven’t told you and I’m sure you would have written if you’d read my posts that I lost my incredible husband suddenly on 12/3. He collapsed on Sunday and died Monday of a brain aneurysm. Still just trying to move forward at this point after managing to get through the holidays. I’m reading blogs when I have a chance. Hope all is well with you.

    • I’ve been thinking about what you wrote all morning, Dee. Can’t think of what to say apart from the usual things that you’ve probably heard and read a thousand times. Life is such a cliche. My heart goes out to you all the same. You’ll move forward. Time will pass and… well, you know. Sending you love. Keep… moving.
