Edge














Explore the cliff edge,
How “edgy” it is;
How hard to gauge the
Drop to the bottom.

It looks a big drop.
One you’d never
Survive if you jumped.
Look back – way closed.

You could hang around
For ever at this edge.
Not here, not there,
Not home. Cliff edge.

What’s at the edge?
Fear; wind; space;
Gravity holding your feet.
Keeping you there.

Scaredy blue cat.
No way back.
No way forward
Just pacing the edge.

What if this edge
Is actually home?
Without the fear;
Wind – space – gravity.
