by Laurie Kolp

Free as a bird
The wind
Sometimes cool, sometimes warm
Slaps my face
Tickling my nose with every breath
Opening my sleepy eyes

Free as a bird
My blonde hair
Sometimes long, sometimes short
Sails through the air like a kite
Sticking to my sweaty cheeks
Wrestling with my lips

Free as a bird
Inert muscles
Sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly
Awaken with the motion
Bending and straightening my knees
Pumping back and forth like a piston

Free as a bird
A whirlybird
Sometimes dizzy, sometimes not
Spinning like a top
I twist myself up and let go
Invigorating my heart and soul
