NaPoWriMo – April 29

April 29, 2013

napo2013buttonPenultimate poem! I feel that this year has been a real fight, roll on next year!  Tonight’s poem is one I wrote about two years ago, it feels downbeat but I like it’s fragility. Hope you like it.

If I fell from a bridge


If I fell from a bridge

or a tree

but fell gracefully

willingly giving my body to gravity

relaxed with a smile on my face

to the point

where you, watching

weren’t quite sure whether

I’d chosen to do this

would you be surprised

when I hit the ground

and crumpled

and broke?

Had I known what would happen?

had I believed that the air

would catch me up

so that I soared and spiraled

joyously caught up

in an elemental expression

of freedom


or did I know that

I would break

and yet still

welcome the end?

 I will endeavour to be more upbeat tomorrow and I will give more formal thanks to people that have followed me 🙂

  1. I agree about the fragility. Well done.


  2. It’s beautiful. I absolutely love it.
