Leap of …

A poem by Isabelle Sorrells


Can you take the leap?

Can you summon the courage

To place your trust

In the cerulean liquid sky?

Can you trust it to catch you

In clouds of effervescence

When you step off the unshakable security of solid ground?

Abandon its consistency and aegis,

In exchange for the thrill of discomfort?

Can you stop thinking for just a moment,

Close your eyes,

And Jump?
