I step up
the open door awaits
sights appear in front
canvassed blue is what I see..

Into it .. I jump..

dropping
spearing
spiraling
careering
head first
into the unknown
trekking down
at blistering speeds

Where I wake up..

and spread my arms,
birthing wings
with sturdy legs
as my quest begins

and I am full of wonder..

for the moment comes,
the clock ticks,
and like a bird,
I begin to fly.
