I heard a huge flapping of wings.
A swan flew by so close that I thought
I could just reach out a finger
And touch one of its glorious feathers.

Frosted boats in the early morning light.
A heron bows to the beauty of a crisp early morning
Before flying off
And lending its own poetry to the sky.

They rose in formation
And took off like sleek feathered jet planes.
Round and round they flew –
Not sure if they were coming or going.
(Don’t we all have days like that?)
After a while, they landed
Feeling a little wobbly on their feet.
But ready to try again another day.

It’s early. Very early.
The fog hangs in soft veils as I sneak outside, camera in hand.
Suddenly, a screech rips the sky in two to reveal
A single heron soaring in the blue dawn.
He is joined by two more – a feast for tired eyes.
They whirl, they dance, they leave me breathless
Until they fade into the happily ever after
Of a new day.

Is there anything more peaceful, more spiritually uplifting
Than feathered hope taking wing?
If you could untie your wings and free your soul, you and everyone around you would fly up like doves. — Rumi

It’s a wonder the way a duck can transform itself
From being a clown in the water
To a poem of flight and song in the air.
Don’t let the fear of falling keep you from knowing the joy of flight. — Lane Wallace

A glorious November day with the sun shining just so,
Shedding golden pools of light on trees
As birds took off – into a purple veil of fog.
Poetry in motion.
I leave no trace of wings in the air, but I am glad I have had my flight.
– Rabindranath Tagore
