painting the sky

I watch the falcon
swooping across sweetly
shimmering clouds
in a taut blue sky
and wonder once more
at how solitary he seems.

But perhaps I am wrong,
and the song he sings
is echoed by a thousand
blissful voices
praising an eternity
of expanding hope.

So stretch my soul
across your dreams,
my one and only love,
and carry me skyward
to paint the heavens
in ever brighter days.

    • Cheers, Jay. I agree. In fact, I have occasionally come across photography blogs here on WP that share gorgeous imagery of the bird kingdom. And let’s face it–birds are excellent metaphors for poets and writers.
