Wings

Earth from above

I wrote this poem over twenty years ago, but it still speaks to me.

Wings

If I had One Wish
that I Knew would come True,
I would Ask for Wings.
How I long to Soar
high above Everything.
To Scan below the land and Sea
in all their Majesty.
I desire to Climb to the Sun
and Plummet to the Ocean.
Let me Lift and Drop
in the Heavens above the Earth.
I Yearn to Dance among the Clouds
feeling Free and Proud.
One with the Wild Winds
Daring the Lightning and Storm,
Knowing the Fury and the Calm.
Oh, let me Fly
with Power and Grace!

Emily 1990
