Up and down
forward rolling
slowly losing
its force, its motion
Pick it up
throw harder
with gusto
does it last longer?
Try again
all your might
same result
soon it stops
Hit the wall
at every angle
watch it fly
eventually halting
Stretch your mind
your state of being
notice the difference
the movement is endless
Stay with it
help it along
gentle tap
Focus is the key
It is up to you
which way
how fast, how slow
it changes with you
it moves high
it rolls low
the bounce continues
only resting when you do
