Leap of Faith

Whoever would have thought I could write a poem about a night of fun on a trampoline.

For Mark and Nelena.

Perspective is changed
from the upside down
tumbling, spinning
nothing seems the same.
We strive for normal,
feet firmly planted
yet we power as high
as we think we can go.
We launch our bodies
towards the heavens
around we go, head over heels
only to fall back down.
We land softly on the springy form
and catch our breath,
amazed at what we saw
when we took our leap of faith.
