226 – Lesson

Two steps up,
Roll three down.

A silent curse,
A bloody knee,
A new attack.

Three steps up,
Roll five down.

A pause to breathe,
A look of rage,
A new attack.

Six steps up,
Roll to the bottom.

I can’t do this.

The mountain laughs.

Of course you can!
Just not by force.

I cease to fight.

I touch her soul.

We learn to dance.
