Megan and Huruma's Brownstone

Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapor trail in the empty air,

The high-ceilings in the living room are perfect. The pad of couch cushions removed from their usual home and piled on the floor are a decent enough safety net. (Something she learned to have courtesy of her ass-bone when she tumbled out of the air the first time.)

Megan floats in the middle of the room in a somewhat wavering cross-legged position, hands on her knees.

A soul in tension that's learning to fly
Condition grounded but determined to try

Slowly she stretches out her arms as far as they reach and holds that position for a few moments. Then she extends her legs, laying back as if the air is a mattress.

It's the fourth time she's tried to keep her focus on remaining in the air while she moves. Her shoulder is sore from her last encounter with the floor.

But this time she makes it fully horizontal and holds it.

Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye

Sometimes when she meditates she can almost reach this state, where her mind is just expanding to feel instead of think. There is a freedom to simply letting go… only now when she does it, she's airborne. The tethers are gone.

There's no sensation to compare with this
Suspended animation, a state of bliss

It's an incredible feeling. Safe inside the building where the only things she'll bounce off are ceiling and floor, the redhead gives herself permission to simply revel in the sensation of weightlessness.

It's like the feel of the wind as Huruma takes the bike soaring around curves of the hills heading toward Rochester. A feeling of contentment mixed with a sense of emotional weight coming off her shoulders. Here, like this, nothing can touch her, nothing can bother her…

Can't keep my mind from the circling skies
