Being alive

I’m in the clouds looking down on earth

Or somewhere else just remembering

Either way I’m not here

But I remember being alive

Not general life things

But being alive things

Like peddling my mountain bike for twenty minutes on a steady gradual uphill and finally taking a break

Setting down my bike

Taking off my helmet

Laying in the grass

Hearing the birds chirp

The trees sway

Staring at the big blue sky

As my lungs slowly stop burning

I catch my breath

I think this thought and smile

I once was alive

    1. Thanks, Pat. Just some ramblings that have crossed my mind more often now and thought I’d share. Hope you are doing well😊


    2. Just discovered I was no longer following your site? Not sure what happened there. It’s interesting I’m wondering if others are experiencing this too. I got two new followers today that I know have been following me for quite some time. Well, I’ll have to catch up on your posts😀
