Door County Writes: ‘Dropping In’

by Canyon Burgard, Grade 8, Gibraltar Area Schools

Top of the ramp
Feels so damp
The cloud did rain
I will not complain

Thoughts tangling
Board dangling
Breeze, suspense
I fall, I have defense
At least I have common sense
To bring me back to my present tense

If I fall I will be fine
If not
Pop my bloodline

I feel like I should succumb
No, I need to overcome

I feel my balance
I drop in
Mid exhalence
Board rushing down
All the way
To the ground

I did not fall
I am fine
I did not pop my bloodline
