It's All Good!

Loud Screammmms
Huge Smiles
Wind beating me so hard

Can you feel anymore alive?!
Wind pushing me upwards
Gravity pulling me down

The board strapped to my feet allows me some control
and I zoom through the sky arms outstretched 
Catching clouds instead of waves
       Wind, its' power! 
I scream, I squeal
Reeling from pure joy
Smile plastered on my face
Eyes opened wide

I swirl a loop and it catches my stomach
and I feel like a kid
Every part of my being is in this moment

              I     AM     ALIVE!!!
Balancing on a plank miles above terra firma
Living in the blue sky, wide open freedom
No rules, No boundaries


The fierceness of experiencing such a heightened sense
of consciousness, an awareness of every part of your being
                                Being Alive
                        damn glad to be alive
                               It's all good

                  ~written for Ms Moses contest~

    Don't know how I missed this earlier, Laurie. It's exhilerating and sensational! Makes the reader feel like they are "flying" as well. Thanks for sharing this amazing experience! Love, Carolyn
