Bridging Heaven and Earth

Fueled by atmospheric ecstasy Into ethereal regions' mystery, Tilting wings cavalierly, Bridging Heaven and Earth, Gliding gracefully. Falcon, sky-hawk, hoopoe, finch Starling, sparrow, blue-jay, Grinch; What matter the appellation? The feeling's the same--- Incessant ceaseless sensation Jealous we gaze, stricken with admiration At creatures without borders, without nations: Would that we could bask in their bounty Would that we could sip from their stations.

Would that we could soar through their ceaseless sky and integral purpose ... to LIVE, (not just planning/hoping to). Wonderful write, my friend, and so rife with wisdom and truth. Bravo, Poet! :-)

You have made my day, and probably my week, if not my life, Gregory R. I have learned so much and gleaned so much from reading and re-reading your poems. So, to receive praise from you is humbling for me to the nth degree---and quite astonishing, frankly. (In high school I got an 'F' in AP English on our 9-week poetry 'unit,' and even refused to read poetry in class...As the world turns, eh?). Thank you so much, my friend. :) gw
