The Whim

Jumping into the river

looks like so much fun

a dangerous adventure

emotions begin to run

Fear and excitement

a smile on my face

a small parcel of rocks

which one to use as a base

Water flowing

hearing laughter from up high

a cannonball into the falls

an excited cry

Climbing to the top

a moment of reservation

glancing at the falls below

a slight hesitation

Taking a dive

flying into the air

doing a somersault

it was a dare

Under the water

it seems like a dream

rising to the surface

letting out a scream

Such exhileration

climbing to do it again

there is a mist in the air

water on my skin

One more jump

deciding to swim

enjoying the day

the decision was a whim
