April Poem a Day Challenge – NaPoWriMo #6

This one was inspired by a prompt from Danielle.  She was getting ready for her flight to Vancouver for Verses and decided that since she was thinking about flying we should all write poems about flying … or cheeseburgers, she was hungry, too.  I chose flying.

flying dream

I have never had a flying dream
I’m afraid of heights
     Actually, I’m afraid of falling
     from a great height
Do you ever walk across a bridge and feel like you are
     consciously
     keeping your body from
     flinging itself off?
I don’t dream of flying
 

Be Lovely to Each Other,

Laura
