like riding a bike

Day 25 Prompt: “A first time.”

hands gripping tightly
little legs pedaling furiously
rubber meeting pavement like an old friend
wind alternating combing through my hair and sparkly streamers
the rise and fall of my knees regulating my excitement
I could see the whole world waiting ahead of me
it was the first time he ever let go
as it so happens
flying feels just as amazing as everyone imagines
in fact
just like riding a bike

-E.E.
