I must be weird. My one fall didn't include haiku. One moment she was half-rearing and spinning, then I was on the ground. About 5 seconds later, I was rolling on the ground, shouting cuss words, and saw her galloping toward me.
Thought she was coming to finish me off, but she stopped and put her head next to me. Don't know if she was shaking because of the two-stroke engine noise that first spooked her, or my foul language...but it sure wasn't a slow motion fall! Of course, she's only 15.2, so maybe there is something different in the atmosphere at the stratosphere level.
And in fact, 3 of the letters in my first 4 letter word came out after impact...pretty bad when you can't even cuss on the way down! Let alone think "...Am I good? Or am I bad? Tokyo awaits!"
