The Ride

Sometimes I think I want
a straight and level road
so I can make sure plans
for how I'd like my life to go
like an easy steady stream
with a calm and peaceful flow

But life is more like a feather
that on the wild wind blows
sometimes breeze, sometimes gale
zigs and zags, highs and lows
and I've learned the ride is best enjoyed
when I trust and float and just let go


  1. My feather is experiencing winds of about 150 mph.

  2. Yep, good words to live by and strive for. I like the imagery of a leaf on a stream, just (literally) going with the flow. But a Forrest Gump feather on a breeze is pretty nice too :)
