Re-Right

I deal with things
regarding matters
every day

re: this and re: that and I thought to myself ~
time for some retrospection regarding my own mdear

so Im only 52 with emphasis on only
and Im only writing because its my passion;
Im only working to pay the bills now
for the fun of it
has been left behind and most of those
I know
are foot-loosing with fancy-free

and its not that I envy them
but would spend more time with them
and I will, I will

So I tackled the big ride again, took off
on an old-fashioned road bike,
just to re-right myself,
health being a factor to longevity, one knows
but not for too long, for the disused body
aint what it use to be,
but one has to start, somewhere
so I started Sunday, appointments Monday,
rained Tuesday,
so on hump day I lumped along
joined the parks setting, spoke to the birds who can eat
all carbs via bread they wish and yet not fall to fat
[plump maybe] ~
biked till a burn began, then headed home, knowing tomorrow
is yet one more working day;

on the way home, senses and sensibilities
became more aware;
bar-be-ques were smoking; jasmines were scenting;
children, laughing; birds chirping;

me, dodging traffic;

my mind was running away in words
to share daylight dreams, to rework and re-edit
what I might display;
to re-right my wrongs of all that Ive failed in

and to acknowledge
those few successes of moderate times;
to realize my reasons to re-do my thoughts
and re-write, re-right, re-sight with regard
all reasons to push on.

So I shall.
