There may come a time when your belief
pauses in its flight and questions itself.
Perhaps it will only be for a brief moment,
but in the breathless space of that small opening
your feet may touch the ground again.
It will feel somewhat strange at first
and yet vaguely reminiscent, as if
you once walked the earth naturally.
Soon enough you find yourself
back in the clouds, the dreamy sky,
but now you remember the sensation
of solidity, the vitality of upright walking.
Yes, you imagine you may try it
again, perhaps sometime soon.
This makes the contours of your mouth
form into a very slight but definite smile.
