This life is just like flying.
Some of us take wing and
sail off to some better world.
There are a few dips and turbulences,
but it all works out in the end.
Just the gentle breeze of a thermal
rustling through our primaries.
oh how I!
would love to witness such a marvelous thing!
And I thought I had, once.
My soul warmed to the touch of our great sun -
purred aloud, honestly –
and my heart grew heavy with hope.
And sudden like a flash of lightning…
Overcome by the salt and sea below.
It's been so long now but…
I'm still drowning.
