Sweet Breeze


Granted graciously,

requested recurrently,

swinging back and forth between two;

sweet breeze brushing past.

Stiffness setting in when solo,

strained movement stutters to stagnation,

reduced to standstill.

Underdog!  Underdog!

Desperate cries futile,

bouncing off deaf ears, non-existent arms.

Alone; yourself your sole stimulus,

a heave required from deep,

not succumbing to debilitating rust;

self-administering TLC,

oiling wrong, warming bad,

invigoration for what’s coming.

Strength recovered, push prescribed,

catapulting sweet breeze into action.
