Sisyphus

we have to do what we have to do
aware or not
bidden by the gods as punishment
in the clever intricacies of our lives
lived out amid pain and pleasure
opposing similarities
we notice
perhaps
a blade of grass
kiss of the sun
slippage of foot on unsure ground
but distraction comes easily
when mind wanders from the moment
stay focused
enjoy it all especially
perhaps
the dull and boring ordinariness
realising that we could have
probably should have
stopped a few minus before we did
thus avoiding futility
