Canceled Flight

Written by: iolanda Scripca

Owl in my heart...
Love in the dark...
Nocturnal sighs...
Claws thrusting 
Fragile branch
Wings folded tightly
under a wishful moon
Wandering Solitude
rebuilding shelter
Suspended over canyons
of my Soul's Sunrise...

Dreams of ephemeral hovering
Upon peaceful belonging
with roots of wild olive trees
deep in a restless sand

I was the eternal traveler
hoping for a destination
with open doors and laughter...
                  
                  ***
...an empty runway with all flights cancelled...
