Skybound

——

To float upward with the breeze

climbing toward the clouds

skyward bound

Heart empty and brain alert

and I do see your fear

I do..

but don’t worry…it’s easy

there are signs everywhere

just pointing the way..

And I will surely spend

some time in the fluffiest of clouds

before gravity greedily claims me

in a headlong rush back

towards what I hope

is the softest

of crashes

upon the kindest

piece of

ground.

  1. I’m staying in the fluffy clouds….no, no, no to gravity!!! Well said, David. Your continued ability to express common experience in great depth through prose while matching interesting photos, is a gift indeed—the fluffiest of gifts. 🙂 Sam

  2. Oh this is ‘fabulotastic’ David! I love it ~ floating in bliss until the crash – when gravity decides. Just wishing for us all the softest of landings, as you say. This is a great one all around – thank you 🙂 Off to float a bit as I sleep (hopefully) and ready myself for another big day here… sweet dreams!
