Wheelchairs and Imagination

Dum du dum dum dum
She hums as she
taps her fingers on
the table,  
closing her eyes.

Da rarara dum darum.
tips her head back and
sings a tune nobody knows.

La lalal dum di dum
strange tunes whisper
and weave through
the air and to  
a strangers ears.

the tunes gain discernible
words and melody.
but the others stare
as they walk by.

Maybe one day….

she sings, wheeling around
and imagines
dancing to the beat
of her own melody.

Maybe someday…
she sings, sadly
looking at her legs,
wishing for one more chance

To run

And jump

And twirl

And kick.

Dum da dum dum….
she hums again,
in her imagination,

forever dancing.
