When My Mind Takes Flight ( a poem of greatest inspiration)

To soar with the eagles...
To soar with the eagles...


If I could fly with the eagles, those great hawks, grandest birds of the air,

I would scale the loftiest heights, among white clouds and blue skies, fair.

I would breathe sweet scents, so rare, catch sunbeams, there all to share,

My strong wings, by day to grant my flight, soar by moon at night. as I dare.


To fly by the bright moon at night...
To fly by the bright moon at night...


Over the highest mountain's tops, I'd so wing, then fly to heaven, as angels sing,

If I could do this, of ten thousand things, precious thoughts to my mind it brings.

Wild geese, sweet ducks, sea birds, all dance, a joy to see them, if only a chance,

All marvels of nature, birds, our lives do enhance, so delight us, as in a romance.


Fly among white clouds in finest blue skies...
Fly among white clouds in finest blue skies...


As each day is over, setting sun in the sky, I search for night birds, to see them fly,

All-seeing eyes scan the sky, see things we'ed never see, as is morning by and by.

Chimney swifts, great owls, search all domains, feel evening breezes, every grain.

Then all return to hiding places, towering trees, each graces, high over every lane.


all return to their resting places...tall trees, chimney tops, lakeside domains...
all return to their resting places...tall trees, chimney tops, lakeside domains...


Now is so to be, each and every night, I lower the shutters, turn down the lights,

I try to rest with all my might, with my closed eyes, to review the day's fine sights.

Wearily, and after the long day has run, a welcoming sleep, the night has begun,

Amid the darkness, as all chores are done, I fly in my dreams, to have some fun.

I may fly, if only in my grandest dreams...

Isn't this what all of us writers do? We dream, then write, and in so doing we soar with the birds of flight.

Hey, that was almost poetic! LOL NOT!

Beautiful thoughts, my friend.

They dream to be us, and we to be them. This life, I realized how lucky I once was.

I felt every word! I too desire to fly like an eagle, to soar above all the earth and feel the freedom of flight.

I love this, whonu. It would be awesome to soar with the birds. I can feel the tickle in my belly now, just like it does when I swing on a swing.

Thank you bravewarrior and many blessings. Yes, it would be grand to fly with the eagles. I once wrote a lyrical poem about that very thing.It later became a famous song and was stolen from me,several years ago. Although it was taken without permission, I 'm glad it became a favorite. whonu
