Falling Up

ZigZag questions, seasick
Yoga Zen fallen flat
Xmas once a year
This wrinkle in time
This heroic villain, down to get up
Undermining the minds in the mines
with Trapeze daydreams
To stick to the sky like a Starfish
Regeneration in a riddle
The quiver of a promise
Order nailed down deep in the chaos
The murmurs of a muddy hope
A lamp for the lost
A kayak skimming surfaces
A jet that zooms above it all
Or just an inch above ground
To howl or hush here
This quicksand gravity of change
To build a fence and hide, outside
Until my echo and I become extinct
A piece of driftwood tossed aside
A dancer asked to crawl off into the wings
Losing her balance 
In this dizzying About-face
This Z to A
moment of
falling up.
Perhaps a better stage awaits.

"A lot of people resist transition and therefore never allow themselves to enjoy who they are. Embrace the change, no matter what it is; once you do, you can learn about the new world you're in and take advantage of it."Nikki Giovanni

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 (msg)
