NaPoWriMo 2012: six


In Flight

the highs and lows can be counted on,
their swooping turbulence, wind rushing
over and over and over and over and over.
where's the safe landing you expected?
the trick is to find your wings where you are.
the trick is to keep flying. keep finding the wind.
the crash will come. the trick is to stay aloft
and when the crash comes, to roll with it,
roll into it, so that damage is minimalized.
one day we will be broken completely.
the trick is to realize: now is not that moment.
this moment, you are still flying and all is well.
