Painting by Margarida Cepeda

Flight Lane


So far from myself, so close to numbness
enclosed in the wispy milkiness of morning
verve limply outlining the trajectory
of this stupor, so sluggishly similar
to walking within gelatinous roots of feathers
yet to form beyond the bird to be
inside the egg, I’m a song that does not hatch
and a flight too lethargic to break through
the shell.

Yet, the trees await me, as they wave softly
in the design of air and probe into the density
of haze, ultimately sifting in their appeal
in shades of boughs and their counterpart
in dapples of sun.

It is then that I perceive you, perched upon lines
of eagerness and rustling leaves that scatter
in a shower of colours and modulations
the redolence of hope and the wakefulness of space.

So close to myself, so far from dettachment
you plunge in full wing into my core
and swiftly draw my evasion out and high
in the open, until it unfurls with all
the decipherability of a poem
about to soar.

In the amplitude of voice retrieved
and well above the scraps of that insentient
shell, a boundless flight lane becomes
our day.

This breathes life into the very essence of the invisible field of love and loving, so soft at first that I could only feel the soft downy feathers of the bird or the billowy lightness of the clouds but as I read on strength seemed to grow out of the spirit of this poem and grow hard and strong as love can also be. Beautiful write my dear lady and so so moving.

Though you may feel like you're in a "funk", you are still writing brilliantly. Sometimes, we feel as if we are in a haze yet the misty fog soon dissipates with the warmth of the sun's rays. We only have to take one step at a time. Never more, never less. Hold my hand, if you like, but you are cleared for takeoff!

I Love You!

I often wondered what a bird thinks about and you have described it so brilliantly in this prosaic write.

This is a beautiful metaphor, I loved this:

I’m a song that does not hatch
and a flight too lethargic to break through
the shell.

Yet, the trees await me, as they wave softly
in the design of air and probe into the density
of haze, ultimately sifting in their appeal
in shades of boughs and their counterpart
in dapples of sun.

absolutely outstanding.
