it’s another early morning

with coffee in hand

to chase out the cobwebs

from another night’s deep sleep.

it’s time to head out

for another day of unfinished business

of working these forklift controls

in the lifting and descending

and side shifting action

to keep the load balanced.

it can get tough,

especially when the moods

have been taxed to the extreme hilt.

sometimes you have to park it

when old weak lines

are extremely frayed.

eventually new ones

come into play

for the hydraulic controls.

when life starts to gel –

words start to gel too.

with a little experience

one can drop each load slowly

until it solidifies the foundation.
