My wings perches my soul,

I cannot be kept in a cage

For I will fly to thee

Across the blue skies

Free!


I cannot be drowned

In the barrel of water

For I can flap my fins

Swim in the deep blue sea

Breathing!


Fly high, dive down

At the edge of the cliff

Or at the crevices of

The turquoise sea

Alive!


You cannot clip my wings

You cannot tie my fins

Or scare my soul

I’d roar to the sound of

Courage!


Turn and fall out

As the season change

I will be still inside myself

Renewed with infinite

Beauty!


On the distant hill

Or under the sea

You’ll hear me sing

The melody of

Peace!


Death and suffering

I am well aware

But my heart is tuned

In the infinity of

Love!


I will fly, I will swim

In the endless sky

Bottomless sea

Far in the abyssal zone of

Life!

      I love this poem. It expresses your Spirit so free and strong. We all need these kind of poems to lift our burdens when we find ourselves lost.

      hawaiianodysseus: Mahalo Joe! Yes, I always have my note pad with me so I could scribble in between and during breaks over looking the vast universe. More often, they are kept only in my diary; some I actually have published here on HP and some were printed in our local community newspaper (Travel Page) . As well, I always have my cellphone camera ready with me. I am sneaky that way....hi..hi...hi...!

      Thanks again Joe for your visit and most enjoyable comments. Mabuhay!

      Oh, Cris, that water behind you on that beach...wow! So inviting! Suddenly, I'm really missing the fishing back home!

      Just curious about something...

      Have you ever written parts of a hub during a lull in the flight? That picture you took of part of the wing's upturned flap is absolutely awesome. From that vantage point, the little boy in me would be checking for faces or animals or castles in the clouds. How incredibly exhilarating to be able to see the underbelly of the clouds while stretched out in a meadow, chewing on a blade of grass, and then later...while cruising at 10,000 feet! You have quite the life, my atmospheric gypsy soul!

      Thank you for sharing your brilliant poetic talent with the world, Cris! I am definitely honored to be your friend. Aloha!
