Poem: "Skydiving Through Time"

This poem came out of the January 6, 2009 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by prompts from janetmiles, minor_architect, and moosl.  You can read more about the indriso form here.

stonetalker gave this poem as a gift to bodhifox.  Happy holidays!

Skydiving Through Time
– an indriso

Life is a climb
Up the strange stairs of time:
A spring to wind, a pump to prime.

When you get to the top, you dive,
Soaring till you arrive
At birth, alive.

This is the soul’s eternal pantomime.

This is the flight from which all dreams derive.
