I entered a trance like mind-space induced by speed
Rejoicing I went up residential 23rd and ripped down 24th
Eating green lights, speeding for ten streets
The sun came out, and, feeling like a teenager
I went up the hill and did it again.
A state of joy can persist
tossing away worry and want
doing what one’s heart desires
The mundane moments
can magnify into expressions
of trust and love
Lightness of being is
not found in the cynic
the driven, or the fearful
This is adventure of little distance
most restful time for me
walking, watching dogs play
Deciding to be good to me
in the pub with water
waking up to quiet health.
I’m really loving this new way of life
Don’t miss the kitchen much
I play outside all day long
I see new things every day
Lance meets dogs all day
Driving as little as possible
at peace with all beings (except flies and fleas)
Something I’m doing here
is making me happy and healthy
so I need to keep doing it.
You can have your goal oriented
your career management
your agenda driven
your commitments, your curriculum,
and especially your competition.
You can have your property game
your excuses; excesses, your delusions; distractions.
Have your stuck anchors and heavy chains
and your dead albatrosses
Have it all… Chattel. Vanity. Folly.
I’ll take peace and freedom
without needing to buy a house in it.
