Wings In Flight.

Source

Morgan sat her heart shattered to sharp painful fragments ; her whole being so aching to join her true love.

Oh how she longed to run to him;to find her haven once again; so safe she was in his protective embrace;to hold his hand; for him to hold her upturned face in his gigantic but oh so gentle palms.

Her inhibitions held her captive; her fears kept her a prisoner within herself!!!!

Was she never to embrace life's wealth,beauty and her very own true love once more ?

That special once in a lifetime magical bonding cocooned in life's truths and treasures.

Her true love awaits over life's oceans.

Drifting into her mind flows a whispered song ; a song from the deep recesses of her being.

A song of hope,a song of sweet wishes,a song silently but so clearly begging for life's wings to carry her to the arms of her lover.

She visibly struggles and thrashes against each invisible barrier as they so painfully evolve into those cruel captive chains of life !!

Keeping her life's wings captive in a cruel, clipped and torturous mode !!!!!


Source

With soft trepidation

eager young toes testing life's waters

each heart so softly but surely

pushing boundaries.

Those wings of life

she wills

to take flight............................................



With a whispered fluttering excitement

time jerks back into rhythm;

that muffled calmness lifted.

Those wings of life

she wills

to take flight............................................


With an unrelenting spirit

raindrops splitting on glass;

white rocks momentarily covered

with yellow beaked gulls.

Those wings of life

she wills

to take flight............................................



Misty memories slowly gathering

in greedy anticipation;

shoulders hunched against whipping winds;

before being absorbed into surroundings.

Those wings of life

she wills

to take flight............................................



Blue skies littered with

soft fluffy clouds;

devoid of impending gloom;

a picture of bliss

magnetic eagerness enticing.

With immense strength;

a spiritual faith

and eternal hope those wings of life

are successfully willed

to take flight............................................!!!!!

Wings cruelly clipped

never again to fly??

Self belief lacking

heartbreaking cry !!!!


Those cruel reflections

inhibit each moment.

Hearts cry for mercy

crude disappointment !!!




Source

A strength so sublime

a magical potion.

Her heart now clear

wondrous emotion.

Wings in sweet motion

today she will fly !!

Self belief returns

never again to cry !!!

Source

What was the point in growing wings if she were never to take flight ???

Very nice. I particularly like the imagery. Repetition can also be a very powerful poetic device, something you employ beautifully here. Nice.
