Para-Sailing

By
So there I was shaking with excitement
After the long wait it was finally my turn
Then sitting on the back deck I could feel
the wind as the boat knifed through the
water.

Suddenly I was lifted into the air
then my feet brushed the cool water
slowly I soared like a bird to 200 feet
at that altitude all of Key West became
visible to me
as did all of the surrounding islands
but all of a sudden, I started to descend
very slowly.
Down

Down


Down I went towards the boat.

As I approached the deck, the driver
did something totally unexpected;
he dunked me in that delightful water
so that my legs were pushed behind me!

Then my peaceful flight ended with me
gently touching down on the rough
plastic deck.
With my hair windblown, I said “Can I go again?”
