December 6: Practice Practice Practice

It is a joy to let your body do
A task it has been well-conditioned to,
For even if it may have been a while
Since it was done, your brain is versatile-

A memory, once it has been created,
With others soon will be assimilated,
Though its specific time and place, in code,
Is permanently, perfectly bestowed.

When you encounter patterns that you know,
From mind to body will the memory flow
Without a conscious thought, and so a beat
Can prompt the singing voice or dancing feet.

And though one can’t take credit for the brain,
There’s great reward from taking time to train.
