Forever Free-fall…


Reflected beams

Off of the still water,

Dancing silver across the top.

We jump.


From off the cliff

Into the still night air

Ever downward we hit water



Through air.


Through liquid.




Forever more.

I'm older than I think I am and younger than I feel. I'm stuck in the 80's but relevant to today (oh I hope that last part is true). I think I am more of an enigma than I really am, but somehow still confound those who try to figure me out (or they just look at me weird, so I infer that). And I really hate my first name. Husband, father, Navy Vet, UCF graduate, cat owner (translate.. slave), wannabe writer, and all around big kid who is stuck in an adult world. Overall, I just... um.. something to something, blah blah blah. And that's all I got to say about that.

      1. I’ve run into the same thing with trying to fit a cinquain into our 42-word limit! In this case, it came across as very intentional. If you hadn’t established the form in the first two stanzas, it might have come across as clumsy, but it is clear you weren’t doing it because you didn’t know how to write a cinquain. 🙂 Really nicely done.
