Re: Falling Up


In honor of Uncle Shelby

Falling Up:

I tripped on my shoelace
And I fell up—
Up to the roof tops,
Up over the town,
Up past the tree tops,
Up over the mountains,
Up where the colors
Blend into the sounds.
But it got me so dizzy
When I looked around,
I got sick to my stomach
And I threw down.

I'm glad someone posted one based on this poem. I think it is one of my favorites by Shel Silverstein, if for no other reason than the image of floating away and what that does to your system. :D
