On the Way


Spread your wings to glide
through sun streaks’ warmth,
to reach and feel the clouds.

          In my best dreams
          I fly round and round
          the confines of my room.

Catch the upward draft.
A lazy float through clear air
colored only by the sky.

Magnificent quiet follows
as you bank left, shift course
to a new everything.

          Strap on wings
          hold tight
          and soar.

In response to the Daily Post Photo Challenge: to interpret “on the way”.

      So glad you like it! Very nice to have your company this afternoon — hoping you’ll stop by again 🙂
      And yes….that really is me hang gliding. An absolutely spiritual feeling to be flying across the sun’s rays and only hearing the sound of the wind beside me. The “guide” who I was literally strapped to, started talking to point out buildings etc and I immediately asked him to just stop — so I could feel and see with no other noise. It was amazing!

    Lillian –
    So not only are you an amazing ‘poetress’ you are equally brave in measure!
    I understand why your words soar as they do – you’ve truly taken in the heavens from above. This is a beautiful piece of writing.

      Thanks so much! 🙂 This was on one of my trips as director of a Global MBA. Did not tell my family about it till I got home and showed them the video. Yep – there’s a video and it actually shows one breathtaking moment of me streaking across a ray of sunlight! Wish I could figure out how to post the video — but it’s on a very small dvd…oh well. Pictures will have to do. It was indeed, spiritual!

        Fabulous, Lillian. You were wise not to tell your family before. Look up video posting on WP – it’s much like image posting.
