Miracle of Flight
By: Wayne Brown
A point where thrust and lift overcome forces of earth
The chains of gravity fall away and flight takes birth
Man and machine meld together and act as one
Flying upward, upward, towards the blazing sun
Climbing upward into the silken beauty of earth’s sky
Soaring with eagles and brilliant white clouds flow by
Riding the currents and waves of an unseen sea
Given forth to the dreams of where man longs to be
Riding the winds and holding a steady course
Man and machine take on all of nature’s force
Navigating their way into the curiosity of above
Immersed in the art of flight and totally in love
Though winds blow hard and storm clouds rage
Man has come forth to an emerging new age
In sleek machines designed to conquer the winds
Here to explore and search for new friends
The perils are many yet man never ceases to return
To the silk of the blue and the lessons yet learned
To the thrill of the movement, the joy of the dance
The adventure of a lifetime if one takes the chance
Oh the feeling that occurs; earth chains fall asunder
That feeling of flight and such adventurous wonder
To rise above earth's grip and soar unto a height
To feel the freedom and exhilaration of man in flight
