Every bit of will she possessed,

she started calling,

it didn’t help, she was still falling,

her train of thought scattered,

her concentration shattered,

and the air tore at her

as she plummeted down,

and the only thing coming fast

was the rocky ground,

then there was a bang and a pop,

the wind seemed to stop,

she felt her body lifting,

crazy images kept sifting

through her mind,

then she floated away,

like a feather in an updraft,

angelic music would play,

reality would sway,

there was nothing hiding,

and in the wind

she just kept riding.

      That has soul and meaning Frank. I felt sorrow but it had truth to it. I voted it up and pinned it.

      Frank, great imagery, I'm guessing she is not skydiving, or is she? Knowing you, something else is going on but either way, beautiful writing.
