Take a load off. Have a seat.
Draw those slow, deep, diffident breaths.
Let those difficult thoughts
and the easy ones
come and go.
Don't chase them. They'll return soon enough.
Relax shoulders. Relax jaw. Relax belly.
All those muscles that clench or resist–
set them free– they need a rest.
Sit and see
how the view changes
closer to the ground.
Now lean back,
look at the sky.
It's still there.
