Takeoff


Count commencing
Heart thumping
Arms retracting
Fuel pumping
Engines firing
Rockets roaring
Ground shaking
Lifting, soaring
Heat rising
Shudders pounding
Noisy shaking
Boosters sounding
Slowly upwards
Rising, rushing
Going skywards
Forces crushing
Climbing onwards
Seeking higher
Jets propelling
Silver flyer
Air thinning
Darkness closing
Moving faster
View imposing
Bursting, punching
Space surrounding
Into blackness
Earth...astounding!
