My 15/16 New Year condensed into an egg timer
Less healthy, less active, less everything really,
Dismantling, disengaging, disconnecting,
We’re wringing out, wandering around,
Losing muscles, losing our voices,
“My grace is sufficient for you”.
Borrowing bits, toys, clothes,
Even wheels and houses,
Giving away, getting rid,
We’re becoming less,
Selling our home,
The tide is out.
Exploring the land,
Training dogs, digging soil,
“Behold I make all things new”.
Choosing paint, Making friends,
Raising the roof, planting gardens,
Swimming in rivers, praying by trees,
Mountaintop footballing, horse-riding, baking,
More partying, more dreaming, more living life in full. More.
