Perhaps a Moment Too Late

Perhaps a Moment Too Late

A Poem by Hebe
"

A moment too late or not soon enough?

"

A moment too late


I felt the wind change direction


I felt the earth shift


my toes tilted on the edge of the jagged cliff


my red sandals wobbled on  pebbles and gravel 


I stepped back to balance 


a swirling ballerina my toes on the ledge


the wind blew my skirt over my face


I fell over


over the edge


over the red rock


down, down


watching the scenes unfold


green patches and vibrant blooms


tilting there heads watching me float


down, down


slowly capturing time


dreamy, fluffy clouds of texture


reaching twines, fingers grasping


my arms waving in a frantic dance


the trees stretching their branches


offering green leafy cushions for my


plummeting body


I saw me in the blue body of water


I heard the silence between my breaths


I felt euphoric for seconds, moments, eons


the whistling tune of air


I remembered the song, the melody


mommy sing me that song


I am happy


the cold icy water embraces me


and my red sandals bop to the top


I look down and wave to me


as I sore to new heights


with fresh sparkling energy


I'm floating on air


nothing cumbersome remains


all has rejuvenated


I am a breath, I am a rock, I am lamb


 and I see you waiting on the edge


I'm hear I shout as I whirl by


I exhale and swoosh your hat flies


down, down


next to my bopping sandals


I kiss your forehead


and sail, mingle and glide


and the winds of heaven


change direction once again
