I Can Fly

  1. So simple.
  2. Arms outstretched, fingers poised.
  3. Take a breath in.
  4. Focus.
  5. Run up.
  6. Accelerate.
  7. Heels up, tippy toes in control.
  8. Lean in.
  9. Lean in.
  10. Chest up.
  11. One foot is up, the next follows.
  12. Breast stroke the arms to find the altitude.
  13. Breath in. Hard. Deep. Paced.
  14. The temperature changes. The cool air streams down the body.
  15. Look up.
  16. Look down.
  17. Arms outstretched. In flight.
  18. Breath lightens.
  19. Sun beams break the clouds on the horizon.
  20. Smile.
  21. Glide.
  22. Laugh.
  23. Swoop, spin, roll.
  24. Glide.
  25. ...it was so simple a dream as a child.
