When I was a kid

I would rush to the playground

Rush to be the first one there

So I could get first choice at the swings.

I miss those days.

I miss that feeling of freedom

Of leaning so far back

I could have fallen

But I relish the sight

Of the sky

Flipped upside down

And I felt



Scurrying over a sea

Of blue.

And in those moments

I swear

I could have flown


Out of that plastic seat

And touched the sky.

Never having to come back down.
