FREE FALL THROUGH SPACE

What does it feel like?

To free fall

through the air.

To let yourself go

to the feeling.

To step back and jump.

Nothing but air

until you hit the water.

To believe in yourself.

To believe in the water

to cushion your fall.

Freedom.

An escape from life.

An escape from reality.

What does it feel like?

I’ll let you know

after I hit the water.

THE DICTATES OF OLD MAN WINTER

flowersgardenlove:

The epic battle of the seasons.

Old man winter tries to

erase all signs of Fall.

He covers the ground

with his icy cold snow.

But Fall holds her leaves close

to her body and her heart.

Some have fallen,

lone casualties of war.

The battle rages

on the ground,

in the air,

and in the water.

Fall will have to succumb

to the dictates of Old man winter.

She has no choice.

But she puts up a valiant battle.

She will be back after Summer

finishes heating the earth.

Farewell.

We’ll see you soon.

LOST IN THE RAIN

Lost in the rain.

Beaten down.

Alone.

Drifting.

Tired.

Wet.

Ready to give up.

On life.

On the world.

Curled up in a ball.

Ready for my last breath.

Then the unexpected happens.

The sun comes out.

The birds begin to chirp.

A wet breeze hits my face.

I look up into the sun.

I don’t feel so alone anymore.

I feel alive.

I’m happy I waited.

Waited for time to pass.

For time to heal old wounds.

I’m ready to face the day.
