Afterrise

Afterrise
thefall
knowing it will come
makes it no less disappointing

hard to enjoy the rise
while waiting for the fall

maybethistime
gravitywillfail
but physics does not play
by my rules

it is a law, after all
this law – not made to be broken

ohtheblissoftherise
hopeofallgoodthings
even Hope oF all
has Fall built in

clinging to hope with the fall in all
proves to be an endless quest

takeoffismyfavorite
landingscaresmetodeath
love flying – hate landings.
something to that, perhaps.

air rushing over wings creates the lift – more physics
cut the engines, flaps come up – the law says “descend”

whatgoesupmustcomedown
thatslifetheysay
I continue my journey – both ups and downs
practicing the inevitable fall

with panache
instead of panic.
