My First Time


 Gently swimming away from our home as it floats, suspended between earth and sky, I am buoyant with gratitude and beauty.



Held to the earth with 150 ft of chain, and soaring up into the clouds with arms outstretched, we appear like  a speck on the surface of a huge jello shot.


The world is silent now, the birds have gone to sleep. We will soon follow them into our own nest, and drift off from this world of dreams, soothed by the voice of the VHF man, reassuring us that tonight, there will be no wind, no storm, to threaten our peace.
