Worth the Ride
© 2007 By Terri Marie
This morning my soul came back
From riding the highways of heaven
The body brakes wobbled
As it pulsed back into my body
Trying hard to blend with the pulling heart
Parked in my bed
It must have been a good dream
'Cause I could feel the resistance
What adventures lie hidden from me now
Left hanging in the spirit world?
So far from the journey I had taken that my spirit tripped over my body
Rushing past my image on its nightly journey
Stalling in midair, hovering in its decision of this daily marriage
Rethinking it perhaps
I'm sure I almost hit something trying to park my spirit back into my flesh
Does heaven have insurance for collisions like this?
Somehow my rest in peace position interrupted
Earth becomes my focus for a few more hours
What was I doing chasing caged swans in a soul that leapt through caged buildings?
So I breathed the air back into the two parallel balloons floating in my ribs
Let my heavy limbs inflate with life again as the energy of a new day finally turns over
I roll under as my spirit struggles to stay awake.
As I pry my spirit back from the heavenly joy ride
