The Magnificent Flight

Giving thanks this morning

for the privilege of seeing him fly

soaring in the wind

it’s his ally

Wings spread

flying through a cloud

expressing adoration for creation

song is quite loud

Confessing the truth

of how freedom feels

riding a breeze into the mountains

has a thrilling appeal

Over a river

seeing a fish

diving down quickly

a delicious dish

On top of a tree

there is a nest

the magnificent creature lands

basking in the sun to rest

What a thrill

to have the ability to fly

soaring across the land

in the beautiful sky

  1. I have a great desire to see an eagle’s shadow, some day… I heard a song about that once, and it had a huge effect on me.

    I so loved your poem.
