Health is everything

Spectacular red dawn clouds

Reflecting on the windows

Of a house as I run past

A sick man is inside

I wonder if he sees the colours with any more wonder than I

Are they reflected even now

On the pupils of his eyes

As he lies in that bed?

Knowing of his illness

I send blessings

Deeply grateful for the ability to run

On a morning like this



And feeling 25

Despite being closer to 50

May I always be this healthy

Right up until I’m dead.

Health is everything

The rest is just in your head
