Photo by BotheredByBees

When the weight of her everyday became too much

Rain of victims. Crossing a parched field a summer moon was laughing like a naked lie. I intend to lie in state, no grass was going to cry. A red spot was growing on your chest. Were you shot in

Fly – Flight – An Ode To Birds

Fly   Flight   An Ode To Birds long poem

Birds levitate and are airborne, Flapping wings soaring to the highest stratosphere, Flying into the blue yonder, Over snowcapped mountains, abutting the clouds, Flying, gliding, landing, so sublime Perching themselves in the tiny gap between other birds on a cable
