Somehow this day is

different, from any other.

Is it wise to traverse this

bridge today?


Rickety boards span

a gulf. It isn't easy

or safe, neither is she.


She aspires to the precarious.

she's wreck-less and jam-packed

with vigor.


Grandiose thoughts rule her.

Not careful at all, she dances

onto the slat. A gush beneath,

forced from some nether region,

her excitement builds.


Salt water surges and flows,

too weighty for laps. Just watch,

see where she lands. Predestined

to what, she doesn't give a damn.


Janet Caldwell 2001-2010

An oldie revamped
