Leap

Run up

Jump

If you’re not sure where you want to land, lean forward

Prepare to make contact

Let the ground take your weight

Relax

It will hurt

Make the flats of your feet sting

Dirty your hands in the mud

Bruise your knee

But you only have to do it once

Try not to think

Focus

Pick your spot and hold your gaze

Now run

Pump your arms

Pump your legs

Pump your lungs

Your footing is important

Do a skip

Change beat and

Yes

No going back now

That’s it

You’re flying

Flying

Egh

The ground slaps you hard

Makes you crumple

The pain jolts your calves

But not as bad

Not nearly as bad

You wipe your hands

You wipe your nose

You look behind

You wipe your hands

Come on now Rosie, she says, trundling the pushchair

You wipe your mouth

Big day for Rosie, she says as she lifts you and places you in the seat for the ride home.

 

Yeah, yeah, email me
