I am that child in the swing
suspended at the apex
seeing over above all around
(Oh let go of the chains)
that child with her face to the sky
who when stern gravity interrupts
continues to pump her legs
back and forth
bends her ankles at awkward angles
to keep her feet from dragging a path in the dirt
One thought on "Wonder"

Such a great image. Has such good flow. Really captures that moment of childhood.
