Leap of Faith


Standing on the edge

tender toes wriggle

on the craggy cliff

Wind whips

and taunts


the challenge


Muscles tense

Arms spread

wide open

Eyes squeeze shut

for a just a moment

as a fresh breath

is deeply drawn


Pushing off

Her spirit soars

Taking the plunge

is the first step

to finding

a perfect oasis

in the crystal clear water

hidden from view

  1. I like the simplicity of words in this poem and can flow with the concepts. At the end of your poems, you always leave a “twist”…in this poem….a perfect oasis beneath what we cant see…..that is how life unfolds for me.
