Double black diamond

A steep slope. Double black diamond Thin air Cold and getting colder First time for everything I am a little scared. Never done this before. Am I ready? Don’t know what to expect. No one does. Short of breath. Tunnel vision setting in. Long pause before the fast descent. With out consent, I’m nudged off the edge. Taking the plunge. Good bye. See you on the other-side.

John I just read your poem and I hope everything is well with you? It was a little on the dark side so it worried me a little. I want to thank you for your comment on my poem I Want A Window Seat? Thanks Cal Bambi

Thank you for your concern. I’m quite good. I was writing about an experience we will all have someday and no one really knows what to expect. Keep on writing about this glorious life this side if eternity. -John

Thanks for your concern. I’m fine. I thought this might be a bit too dark. Didn’t mean to sound suicidal, but rather tried to approach an experience that we all will one day have.
