i fell out of the lychee tree

today is the day
that i fell out of the lychee tree
i am so grateful for its fruit
and so grateful for this life
another gift of pain to remind me
of the body that temporarily houses my spirit
i will not carry this pain as a burden
i will not question why this happened
but i will be careful as i climb the tree next time
to not linger too long on a weak branch that cannot support my weight
i landed on the grass
and i jumped to my feet
i went from twenty feet on the air
to the ground in a second
and i could not believe it was real
and so i save this experience as a valuable lesson
so i can remember i am not invincible
