different kinds of floating

there is floating
like flying
a freedom
an exhilarating sense of being
beyond a need to be

here, I see a floating
like a boat whose tether
was severed
there is no storm swirling winds
to throw and toss your bits of varnished wood...
not any longer
there just

...a quiet sense of non-movement
while drifting
a slow up
a lack of compass points
a poor connection to others
that isn't like
that freedom
but like walking in the woods, turning around
and then,
being unsure
where you feet
had been pointed so
you just
go forward
inimitable steps, moments, motions
which sometimes fail to matter
because still
when you look up
the clouds are kissed with pink
and the bird song never stopped.
