The Ride In The Sky

“Click clack click clack we go Onwards and upwards ever so slow Eyes wide open pulse pounding Tension mounts fear rising Click clack click clack up the tracks Too late now no turning back Wind swirling through our hair How much higher do we dare The crest is approaching the end is near Staring up at the sky oh how did we get here Click clack click clack…STOP Movement ceases there is a pause Then slowly we ease over and suddenly fall People screaming hands in the air The speed is astounding but no one cares Then several curves suddenly appear Round we go left-right-left in a flash Straight into a cork screw then out we dash Twisting turning climbing looping flying to the top Upside down now…Then comes THE DROP Wind rushing past my ears pasting my face Can’t hear your screams as downward we race One last twist one last rise then slowly we come to a stop We exit the car hands shaking knees weak You grasp my arm and kiss my cheek Oh that was fun can we do it again you ask Goodness yes I say I LOVE to go fast Back in line for one more time” Jon J
