Jumping Boy



A boy in a Jumping Castle,
Full of concentration,
Happy in his own little world,
A world of his own creation.
What does he think as he leaps around,
Like some animal caged-in?
Soon he'll see us watching
And he'll dart us a flashing grin.



Tearing across the sky
Overtaking lesser clouds.
Rushing, reeling, rolling by,
Nothing escapes....buildings, crowds!
Angry, a tube of wicked misery!
Dive for cover!
Or blow to eternity!

Max'll think - looking at us.... Why're these caged-out animals intensely watching me..!

The poem blows with intensity.. Like a tornado.

Children just love jumping, and in one of these they can jump without getting hurt. Much easier on the mothers, aunts and grandmothers who are watching!

Oh I could almost imagine the l'il fella in front of me...very sweet, especially the grin in the end!:)
TORNADO was a power-punch!
"blow to eternity",indeed!
