BACK INTO HER OWN FUTURE


she pushed into the air
the wind held her there
solid as granite

time too seemed to
solidify
held her in her place

umbrellas escaped hands
took to the air
like the strange birds they were

she felt like
a wooly mammoth
trapped in time

she felt like a fossil
waiting to be discovered
her watch told her it was after five

suddenly the wind
released her and she fell
back into her own future
