The Jump

October 18, 2007
The climb... 20 feet,
warm gentle breeze on my back
like a massage so soothing.
at the top I turn around and see ..
The view.... panoramic deep ocean blue.
marine life hidden beneath me,
I hear the sounds of vacationers at the
beach, laughter, boats.
palm trees swaying, like a hula dancer
I prepare myself for the jump..
I launch forward ..
The rush of wind hits my face,
all noise stops around me
I feel the quiet ... and I


Too quickly my feet find the water,
I am engulfed by the sea
I hear the swirl of water around me,
wondering when I will
reach the surface.

My body rises up like a whale,
I take a large breath of air and again the
familiar noises have returned.
