Failing

A poem written in response to this thought; « We are a community of people failing in the company of others who are failing »

Failing

Lying face up
on a trampoline
a friend to my left
and to my right;
they bounce with glee!
Their bounces send me skyward, briefly,
which makes me giggle.
Then I am still
and I am gazing;
gazing with delight
at the sky,
the trees,
and a fleeting glimpse of my friends’ arms

The trampoline has my back.
