Check Your Mirrors

I don’t remember falling

but landing in a heap was inevitable

as I had been stumbling for far too long

I can get up 

but will stay for a moment or two

face down, earth imprinted in my brow

the soil smells of summer

birds above me are in song

bumble bees vibrate in flyovers

the pace has been too swift

to recognize the pieces 

that hold us together

is this the reminder that changes the course

time will tell, but keep in mind 

time waits for no one

as I rise to start again

a grin pulls at my cheeks

laughing at myself
