Jump | #ThePrompt


JUMP!

You make it look effortless to jump
A fluid body at ease in the air
Feet barely touch down before they fly

No fear holds you back, again you fly
Your body sailing into the next jump
Flipping over like a leaf in the air

Smile beaming every time you catch the air
Arms reach out, like a bird ready to fly
Unwavering energy to jump

You jump, into the air, and fly!

    Yep, wish I could regain a tad of that fearlessness…. not that I ever recall having it to that degree!

    I love that you have done this – for some reason the day 7 prompt for NaPoWriMo wouldn’t come to me. You have written it beautifully xx #ThePrompt
