Rescue

 

I’ll take flight.

Walled sunless days left behind.

Flight into frameless blue skies.

 

Muted the wheels of the system.

Forgotten their worthless sounds.

Just

Flocks of birds over my head.

Their serenade my wake up call.

 

Beyond it all.

 

Life flowing fresh.

Flesh, spirit and desire.

Daring to go,

To slow, to pursue.

 

Constellations descending,

The liquid drip of the hours

Chanting, dancing, whispering.

 

I’ll take flight-

Fireflies as my companion-

light and movement without end.

 

Never looking behind:

Growing wings,

Facing anguish in the eyes and at once

Saying good bye.

I'm so glad you enjoeyd "Rescue"! Thank you for your positive remarks. I'm really wowed by them! Have a bright and beautiful day!

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
