taking me by the hand
you were eager to show
your recent discovery...
your new thrill
we quickly climbed the winding stairwell
eight flights to the top
you held the door open
and motioned for me to exit..........

falling stars
and steaking city lights
told me  
I  was    
it was just one step down to the roof
but the open sky aglow with city lights,
the falling moon, and streaking stars
made me feel as though I had just stepped
off the roof into the blackness waiting below
dizzy and breathless from the climb
I discovered the thrill...the total rush
of sky diving at night.
Author's Notes:
thanks to Steve for the prompt, "streaking".  It came from a discussion about his recent post, Have You Ever?

Should I understand this to be a mis-step that gave you the feeling of free falling? I thought perhaps it was because of the line, "it was just one step down to the roof". I went sky diving in beautiful British Columbia a few years ago...what a rush. Loved it! I enjoyed this poem...very nice!

Would be bad enough during the day but at night!,They would hear the screams across two continents and I still would'nt be sure If either were mine, an interesting write Linda Jo~Graham.

me thinks he was thinking of the same streaking that i was thinking (which i have, by the way), but as always i enjoy your special twist.  the night skies can put on one helluva show, can't it?

Raw naked emotions in your write.

ha ha Linda son went sky diving for the first time this weekend. He called, uncommon for a saturday morning to just say,"I love you, I'm going sky diving Mom".
I think I would like to try your version of "sky diving". 
Very creative and a fun read.

I for one agree with you Linda I would love to sky dive just once to experence the thrill. I know, however that it will pale beside the thrill of falling in love for nothing on God's Green earth will ever equal that experence IMHO

Linda:  GREAT write!!!!  When younger I thought about trying it; never did though and NOW --- no thank you!!!!  Maybe in a write but NOT in REALITY!!!! 


Lady D -- hey Gene, calm down, it's okay --- you and I will just get the coffee ready for when Linda Jo "lands"

Sky diving??????      Are you nuts?  What could possibly make you step from a perfectly good airplane into the blackness of night?  Heck ... What could possibly make you step from a perfectly good airplane into the nothingness of day time?
No thank you.  I'll wait on the ground.     I have a yellow streak along my spine and chicken feathers on my body.
