Sometimes I take my shoes off and feel the earth beneath my feet

I try too feel the planet beneath me turning

I never feel it

Only the passing rumble of cars on the road

The tiny tremors of people walking by

I close my eyes and try again forcing my toes against the ground till they hurt

I get frustrated when I still feel nothing

Standing stationery yet still hurtling through the universe

The summer winds blow my hair round my face and I brush it behind my ears

Azure sky's above move lazily peppered with clouds

I close my eyes and hold my breath


Still nothing

I put my shoes back on defeated

I'll try again tomorrow
