NOTICE RESISTANCE

Notice
resistance–
Look it in the face,
hold its hand,
help it relax–
with it, make friends. . .

Honor it and cherish it,
for the teacher that it is,
so you both can move
to better understanding
and eventual landing
on a firmer, broader plain,

from where you roam
on winding and inclined terrain
and choose to stride
toward elevation gain
and yet another brighter, clearer
beautiful and powerful,
brand-new-for-the-both-of-you,
new place,

Where spread such untold wonders
you can hear and see,
while you live in counterpoint
and harmony–
joyful, playful,
in a mix
of upward lift
and gravity,

so that you can really LIVE
in way much better time
and freer space.
