Eyes slid shut
Encased in my own dream
I felt weightless
May be I was lost in space
My hand floated involuntarily in front of me
As if I had to learn again what they had once known.
I curled my legs
A topsy tervy question
And suddenly flip
Like the spin off a trampoline
Head over heels
Then heels over head
I didn't know which
I was bunny hopping
Without the luxury of friction
Not even noting my breath on my visor
Not even having a breath to notice
The pull of the life cord
Woke me with a start
My webbed hands made a chance grab
My foot lashed out
"Go on son"
I noticed shadows in the darkness
And I heard the chant of soothing prayer
That had set me off on my first adventure.
"Go to sleep my little darling..."
A cavern so dark
And a voice so sweet and loving
My head dozed
And i curled again on my amniotic bed.
