Try to catch the light

It soars, a winged beast dripping with 
tender nectar – life, 
Whole of sky nurtured with every 
beat, the beat, the beat…
Impossibility etched in every span
and the remaining?
Impossibility to catch – 
catch such life. 
He’d still try, grim mannered 
surely? No grace in his hack 
Smacking the essence with feisty might
more extravagantly than a child’s plight
to see what might diminish this light. 
Spark, glimmer on water. 
Gleaming glances of colour 
bouncing of a smile.
