ways to live your life

Stand on Mam Tor in your pyjamas under a starspattered sky,
Gaze at the surging pulsating arcs of the aurora
Crawl back into bed, fingers and toes frozen, mind soaring
Curse as the alarm shrills, clinging to the last shreds of sleep
When your children ask, “Did you really do that last night?” grin to yourself and think that it was all worth it.
