Progress -
a simple act
the art of moving on
suddenly snatched away again
Regress

Falling
always alone
without a friend or net
suddenly lifted to the sky
Rising

Flying
Wind born poet
nestled into the clouds
words the only safe place you know
Landing

Moving
trick of the light
hurtling into the sun
an impossible position
Stopping

Living
only an act
you are on a trapeze
relentless fall of acrobats
Dying

Nothing can really be said to describe how amazing I think that poem is, so I'm just favoring it 1_~
