The Ferris Wheel

I can't describe just how I feel,
when I go round on a Ferris wheel,
the lights, they shine so bold and bright,
above the carnival grounds tonight.

My mood is uplifted into the air,
as my heart beats without a care,
I feel so free, as if I could fly,
with nothing between the ground and I.

The cool night wind flows in my hair,
the people look so small, way down there,
I hold my breath as I go over the top,
a feeling, surreal, I don't want to stop.

As fear escapes and I enjoy the ride,
I can't help but look down, over the side,
I am up among the stars and the moon,
an exciting feeling that ends, all too soon.

    Hi Kelly...I really enjoyed this write. It was only 2 years ago that I went for the first time on such a wheel when I was on Blackpool's pier. It was at night, so I can relate to how you feel in your poem. hugs. // paul

    Dear Kelly, your joy flows so well throughout this poem. It's like the reader is right there with you atop the ferris wheel's highest carriage. Also want to compliment you on the co-write you did with Paul. Excellent! Love, Carolyn

    I enjoyed this poem today!! I asked my first wife to marry me at the top of a Ferris Wheel that had stopped to let passengers off. She said yes and gave me a kiss that didn't stop until the Wheel jolted into motion again! That was 41 years ago.
