What phase is this?

Phase four of five?

If the fifth phase is

Complete recovery, what

Is this now?

This is getting used to

being in the present, floating

No current to fight,

No summit to challenge,

No triumph to trumpet.

Just here in the night

With nothing but a notebook

And a duvet

No body to keep me awake,

But thoughts.

Coming down the mountain

Wellness, what is that?

It’s what I feel now,

It’s what I want to feel tomorrow, more.

 

The downhill slope is

Smooth and pleasant

From up here, I think.

I dont know yet.

Shall I try it?

Do I dare? What if

A cheeky breeze kicks up and I whizz forward,

What then? Will the road

Carry on or reach a dead end,

Breeze cackling as I

Whirr into abyss?

 

The mountain’s somewhere behind,

The slope is here, infront-

Harbouring rocks rolled from the mountain,

I suspect, but can’t see them, yet.

All I know is that I’m at the top and bigger than those rocks.
