Leave Earthbound Lives Behind

Poetry for NaPoWriMo 2019

to watch a bird fly 
is to soar for a moment high above the earth
and dip and whirl in quiet updrafts 
caressed by the cool high air

how grand would it be 
to glide the silent sky in feathered grace
looking down on the scurrying things 
and call in joy to flying friends

i dream of flight
like many before me have also dreamed
to lift and rise to freedom
and leave earthbound lives behind


Art by me. This is my twenty-first poem for NaPoWriMo 2019.
