LANDING LIKE A CAT

Given to me for linking in to participate in yet another Poets' Rally, a weeklong read and comment fest where poets share their work, and read and encourage each other.  It is my pleasure to have participated in quite a number of these by now.
I stick my foot
right through the floor. . .
the wood gives way
it doesn’t hold me
any more. . .

I fall with it,
but just a bit. . .

land on that foot
just like a cat–
imagine that!

Someone
or thing
is looking out for me. . .

I grow in balance,
flexibility. . .
awareness, strength. . .

and now
an encounter with
a breaking floor
or shaky ground
leaves me on course
and well intact,
my composure sound–
just as before.
