The water glisten off the water top,
I breathe in one more time.
The wind rushed past my ears,
like a jet plane coming in from a landing.

The wind drowned out everything at that moment,
everything was gone and it was only me.
I could not distinguish between objects,
a wash of water color was in front of me now.

I smiled to myself in that brief moment.

Crash and roar of the water in my ears
startled and clarifies my existence with the world.
I had been just pushed back out in to the world again
reborn, in a sense.

I smiled again, but one of confusion and yearning.

Everything was so clear and in focus like it was
before I took flight.  However, it was less clear than,
when I was suspended in the air.  There and only there
was I flying.

I was free if not just for a moment.
