In a hammock overlooking the Missouri

Weightlessness feels like a suspension in time.

The sway from the breeze marking the seconds

Only so slightly.

Energy sweats from the great force below us

While forgotten debris drifts in its embrace.

Kissed by the river’s great sigh of breath

Tender but certain of its presence 

My face leans in for a stronger caress.

I think to myself

What a lovely afternoon to spend

Weightless and over the river.
