A state to enter

Look, it’s always a dangerous state

- exuberance –

a place that leads to Falls, especially

when others might be watching; brothers,

sisters, fathers,

mothers. I predict they might laugh

loudly at you - like any cynic -

but on bright

days when the sun winks, let it out.

Eckhart Tolle

Thinking about food

yesterday and tomorrow

he munches his toast.

Down's Up

First off – with a peep out from

sleepy eyes he starts the

world again and smiles

looking at toys

who know places

like seaside where

ice cream tastes good

and dodgems where they bumped

and exciting musicals

when people on stage wave

like a big mirror.

He knows where he’s going

and knows it doesn’t matter.

On the school-bus he laughs

loud at songs and driver

each with its bubble of colour

and in minutes hello’s

headmaster, teachers, fellows,

feeling again excitement

like dodgems, musicals,

ice cream knowing he’s got it

made with smiles and friendship,

love and funny people;

lucky life.

a parachute jump

feeling is a single letter plummeting

into sentences by ee cummings

floating waving landing to release

a dust cloud with no capitals

no semi colon and no full stop
