Day 4 in the Woods

“I don’t get it!”

“I don’t get it!”
(Then try again.)

For the first time
I stopped and looked
both back and forward

I have never noticed
the length of this slope,

after having been on the trail
so many times before.

I look up again thinking,
‘Still half way to go,
and I am suddenly
absolutely tired.

OK folks, question time.
Who/What bought the tired
feeling on so quickly?

Some folks will say,
God, Goddess, Spirit
Other Beings in space.

No denying they exist,
but let us give thought
to a place much closer
to home named a mind.
