What A Weight - Poem by Seán O Muiríosa

I felt the weight of my own presence today, freely,
As if I was being pulled towards the mushy earth
Like an wriggling worm after the wet and sudsy rain.

It was refreshing to be; feeling outside my head of locks
With no keys. Later on, the clouds dispersed and the sun,
It shone. And I was there to see it all. Every sweet ray.
