Learning to fly!

Seized by a gust of wind
caught by complete surprize,
but he knew enough as well
just to hold on tight!
Up, up and away
heading towards the sky.
Umbrella clenched in death grip
he rose up four feet high.
His mother grabbed his shoe
and pulled him to her side.
Another crazy incident
that could have gone awry!

Hello, Leslie,
So this really happened? How scary at the moment, and how wild looking back! I think you've captured this unique incident with its whimsy and its possibilities to go "awry." Lovely loose rhyme which adds to its novelty!
Thank you!

Thank you for your comment. It definately was a scary thing. My former spouse pulled him down out of traffic. I thought that my son was going over the fence into the soccer field!

The power of our language can and will change the world.
Successively until our languages become one!
