Wings of the Morning

             Wings of the Morning

Departure on my mind, earth to fallaway,
I see the moving light pass into history
and know that now does not just happen,
I may plunge into the heights, 
create an act of will 
and take the morning with me on the flight.

Away Away and lust companion just enough;
it is the brightness of the day
to make smooth edges rough and sharp
to clear away the fuzz of reticence; 
you'll never understand.
Gleefully I go.  There is no time for me
to take the intellect along; freedom
will afford a price like that, and
certainly with pain.  It always does.

It is the morning that projects the light
and focuses upon the remnant that
the evening spared--the little dream
of prophecy at rest, erupting in
a world of paroxysm, fair delight
and death upon a moment no one knew.

It is for us,
from wings just like that.
