the fourth tenet of well-being

hard physical work

fourth of five


sometimes i would leave

the comfort

of the patio   and my on and off


conversation with colin's grandfather

to actually

help colin   and the others


work the endless rows of vines

sweat labor

hard physical work 


being to me as compassion 

is to 

certain elected officials


but it did me good

i slept well

my muscles ached the next day   


and i had an unfamiliar   or at least different

sense of well-being
