Love ItLove It

I reach for the sun

But,

falling short I tumble

to the ground

and 

scrape my knees on gravel.

Dabbing at the welling blood

I limp to the edge

of the field

and

finding a rock

sit

and wait for the blood

to congeal.

No tuffet

or spider

no curds and whey

just the sound of 

knees

tightening

as the sun

beats down.

I reach again

for the sun

I did not learn from falling.

But again, I am not able

to grab the rays

and pull

the sun to me.

Tumbling to the ground

this time landing on soft

plants

I smile. I know I

will reach for the sun again.

  • Do you seek to reach for the sun?

    • Yes
    • No

What do you think?
