Ferris Wheel

Ferris Wheel

The Ferris wheel
takes us up
and around.
At peak height,
we see the
entire park
below us.
All the choices
we can make
with the right
number of tickets.
The amusements
appear small,
less threatening.
As we come
back down,
the structures
grow larger,
more intimidating.
We limit are options
as soon as our feet
touch the ground.

Are you an amusement park fan?

  1. Ha, not for the rides at least. I like the state fair best. I keep my feet on the ground. I like those last three lines. In ever thought about it like that but I can see it.

    1. Thank you, Debi. There was an amusement park we went to in Canada when I was a child that will always be my favorite.
