A Lark Ascending

Floating, and skimming through the wind
I climb higher and higher to the clouds!
Diving and rising again, I rise above.
Silence! The wind my constant friend
Numbs my beak and whispers out loud
While I climb to that special place I love.

Hoovering, waiting for the rising drafts
I look down through white mountains
Mottled green like algaed ponds in snow
Appear below. Riding old familiar paths 
Of current diving and rising like a fountain
I blast skyward, just a little more to go!

Just one final current to catch, I wait
Spiraling at Heaven's door it comes
And I ride effortlessly past His throne!
Tranquility engulfs me as the world abates
Clarity of mind ever present as I become
One with God!....I am Lark, and I'm home!

    Isns't it odd that our verse has such similaritiy; myine on the Enemy is about this same little bird. Had to read again Tim, so special!

    Can I soar with you Tim. I need new horizons and perhaps this beautiful verse has taken me to one. I love the passion you put into every verse you write.
