Zig Zags ~~ a Poem for Life, Yours and Muhammad Ali's

[click on picture for larger view--it's pretty]
The fence above is a Zig Zag fence (my name for it). This type of fence is free standing and the posts do not have to be dug in for it to stand up even under the very strong winter winds.  These fences are common along the roads around Telluride, Colorado, where this picture was taken.

Zig Zags 
When life throws you a curve you go 'round it  
Straight is the fastest unless you're traveling 
Zig zags are stronger, they will make you strong 

Slow at the outside corners, hang on tight 
Meet yourself on insides, calm and reflect 
You'll get there safe, stronger but not so fast
