The Steering Wheel


Feel the coolness of a breeze
rush your nostrils.


Close your eyes.

How many times today
did you kiss the sky
with your eyes?

Can you feel that
deep satisfying
peace in your chest?

You forgot
but – Remember –
to be open now.

Allow yourself the
luxury of choices;
the thinking that is unanswered;

because it is all right.

You did good;
because you did this for yourself —

if even, only, after much thought.

Desire what you need.
Have what you want —
but, don’t take your
hands off the wheel —

while you’re still moving.
