Dancing in the sky

Arms akimbo eyes alert
hair swinging in the breeze
legs ready to take the weight
of a return to earth

Above us a cloudy sky
below us water waits
surface wavelets rippling
a different world beneath

Gravity will end this
sooner than expected
the plummeting to earth
an ascent upended

If only we could fly
lift up above all troubles
clear the trees and hills
go dancing in the sky
