Wings To Fly

Wings To Fly

Skipping down the rolling and

Mounting piedmonts of love,


I saw an eagle soar spreading

His mighty wings out


I heard the chirping lullaby

Of the mockingbird swirled

With the sweetly cooing doves.


I twirled about and danced

Around with unabashed joy.



Stopping to rest in a soft bed

Of green clover to peer at the

Heavenly clouds above.

Watching a bluebird chase

Another but suddenly

Changing routes.


Judging by their fluid and

Merry movements those

Two were in love.


At that moment I was

Wishing that I could be

As brave as them instead

Of being so coy.

It sometimes seems like an epiphany that doesn't make sense to have experience like yours that is undescribable -- yet seems so beautiful and explanatory of nature's purity and simplicity.  Nice work keeping your heart open to the conversation with simple treasures.  Tristan

I  love to watch the skies also.  Never know what you'll see.  Mostly boring, but every now-and-then you get lucky and see great beauty.
Then you write the sights into a beautiful poem like this one.

This is good --- airy, light, a cloud floating serenly in the sky. It has such "music" about it. A throughly enjoyable read keep 'em coming redcoatsister!

birds have their courtship rituals too : )   though i suppose they spend less time beating about the bush (as it were : )   humans appear to be the only animals that practice deceit (though no doubt some worthy zooologist will contradict me on this lol )
