sometimes

sometimes
riding life’s
currents requires
a wider stance

a lower center
of gravity

spacious
fluid
joints

sometimes
rubbing along
life’s twists is as
comfortable as
tender new skin
abruptly meeting
sharp, shifting
gravel shards

sometimes life’s
molten, shaking growth
spurts ask us to be
something we’ve never been

that’s OK

every mountain
and river and valley
was once a flat and
easy walk

think how glorious
they are now…
