The Ground Growls a Friendly Dare

02 Jun

That first step
the soft bounce
the definite push
the slow realisation
against all odds
that one really is
floating.

Second step
propelled to an exhausting height
fear trepidation
only contained and unaffected
by the thrill
the joy
unexpected feeling of weightlessness
overwhelmed satisfaction
understated gentle landing
so gentle
soft
confident
to be exuberant.

The ground growls a friendly dare
to fall faster
and leap higher each time.

I am miles above the ground.
