An Aerial Soliloquy...

My Careening Thoughts of that Crowded Sky...

Yet, Fly I must, with a thunderous thrust...

Until I pierce that Blue, God's Eye...


To Break the Bonds of Earth's Restraint...To Free my Mind of Fear's Complaint...


Faster and Faster, 'till Time does Blend...

Swiftly Move my Heart to thee, On Wings of Love's Apogee...

For Love awaits my Journey's End...
