Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Growing Pains

Aging is taking me
On a challenging journey
I need a new right knee

Plan for me now
Is to rigorously exercise
Exchanging my  pain for yet more

The final pain most awful of all
Follows the pain of my  surgeon's knife
Then I'll go dancing again
