Letting it all go!

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.

A remarkable piece of writing that sustains interest. It is beautifully laid out but why the single line in between? I like it.

Travel the world to my Site,
Many wonders you see I write;
You can visit the KAIETEUR FALL
With a simple Click at all;
See THE GUYANA KISKADEE or THE CARRION CROW
And you will view how I have them in a row;
Think of what will happen on THAT DAY OF TOMORROW,
If some ideas from THE POWER OF THE MIND you borrow;
FEAR GOD, see THE WAY OF LIFE and visit THE ORANGE VENDOR
You are sure to end up with some humour.

Thank you. It was for a class and I polished it up a little, but it was mostly to have fun.
