Poetry Corner: Sometimes………

By Bernie Bell

Sometimes…….

I want to get away from this body

Away from things hurting

Tiredness

Coughing

Feeling bad.

*

Then…

I remember what this body gives me –

The enjoyment of good food

Sitting by the pond

Watching all the life there

Walking

Especially walking on high places.

*

Yes…

I’m ready for that again

To get up high

Re-connect with myself

The self in this sad old bod.

That’s just the bod

It’s not me.

*

Me –

Feels, enjoys, flies, dances, goes up, goes down.

Me.

Me and my bod.

Teamwork.
