Today’s Short #Poem 130

If it was hot today
I’d want to lie
on my side in a brook
and let the flowing water cleanse
shoulder to toes
dissolve the accumulated
send some nutrients
to the smaller life-forms
downstream

I’d be stronger because lighter
not 17 again and kicking down
doors, singing other folk’s songs
but ready to start anew
maybe more cautious this time
maybe not
