Flying

because we must.
Soaring, because
we can. Painting
skies azure-
spattered clouds
tracing words
wistfully, wondering
why those
below, reach

foolishly,
grasping feathers,
feebly, failing-
darting,
bewildering

you a poem.
An ode to
times betwixt
joy and
pain.
The words
delicious,
teasing
eyes,
promising-
spoken,
an angelic
chorus,
tickling-
celebrating,
with
exquisite
anguish,
abundant
life-
lost.

These…
Reflections, in
time. Mirrored
actions,

spaced

sequenced
situations
pushing
pulling,
remembering
bright, twisted
emotions,
twilight
sunsets,
leaves gusting,
emotions
twirling,
doors, slamming
saying
goodbye-
again.
