Learning To Fly Again

Voice of Scandinavia
(learning to fly again)

In the twilight hour
Blue mountain range
Changing to dark giants

Mysterious figures springs 
.. out of the steep hill sides
Hour of mysteries and fantasies

You`ve been runnin`for too long
Now you`ll be hiding in the dark
Protected behind Mother Nature`s shield

At the break of dawn
Mother Nature, relieve my pain
This time it may very well be my last
Take this injured bird up to the mountain range 
Let it spread its wings, and learn to fly again

Soar above high mountain peaks
Colorful valleys - all from a birds eye
Its all I know.. All I ever wanted to know
Great Spirit of Nature.. keep me under your protective wings
Lift my soul and let it fly, let me learn to fly again

* Inspired by finding a little bird who had fallen out of its nest earlier this year.See ya:-)

    Arild, I read the comment that you left on my daughter's poem, and when I got to the end-line of this wonderful poem(and deep my friend, a lot more going on in-between the lines), I was smiling wide.

    Good Morning Arlid, how are you this morning? This is a very serious experience.. especially when falling and can't get up. I know many times when we take that second flight, life kind of goes around better... hope you put the bird back in it's nest. Thank you and have yourself a very lovely Sunday ;-) always PD

    Your poem is a beautiful read this morning, Arild! I hope that little bird is soaring today...yes, my poem, Fresh Paint, is fiction. I cannot imagine going through such a tragedy, but I know such things do happen. I am going back to make a note on the bottom. I hope you're enjoying your vacation. Love and Blessings, Rhonda
