Albatross Wings

Feathered wings to slice the sky leaving a cloud residue trail Shadow the size of a dime on the water blends into the waves as they sail Perfume of ancients in salt crested waves carried toward heavenly things Rise up like fury to catch the next trip on the back of the albatross wings. Albatross flying like a bright white balloon let loose from a child’s hand So close to be captured but just far away to be lost from our view where we stand. A beacon of sea life, a voice in the wind at attention and ready to dive Feathers of flight, dormant by night “till the waves crashing morning arrive.
