bedside

my legs dangle like a child

too far from the floor for feet

to reach and grab for safety

and I grasped for that feeling

uncertainty of youth

days, hours, minutes not planned

scheduled-in, every second with

someone’s needs and wants 

to be met

free of spirit in flight

where the winds of virgin air

can whisk you away into the world

at your fingertips for the taking

and feet dangling ready to run
