Free Fall

leap of faith

You know that the ground

below

is hard.

Granite hard.

And that the velocity

of the fall

is more rapid

than you imagine

and accelerating.

Still,

there is nothing

freer

nothing that can make

your heart beat

faster than

than stepping out–

No–

Leaping out

arms outstretched

a vigorous flinging

of the whole self

onto what you

cannot see. . .

Yet.

You trust

love

to soften

the

impact.
