On Solid Ground - EL

My feet are on solid ground, for to the earth I am bound. Though I hear river flowing and see the full moon glowing - a pie in star-studded sky - I do not dream I may fly. My feet are on solid ground. July 7, 2021 for charles messina's Elemental Poetry Contest

To one on my favorite poets: my wife won't let me buy that paraglider so I am stuck on terra firma as well. (And, John Watt's analysis is spot on.) Very nice work as usual!

Great verse, Andrea, I saw this yesterday and forgot to comment. I am so sorry , I don't know where my head is sometimes. I am seeing my neurologist Monday for a follow up after test because of this same issue. I am not ready for a rest home. Congratulations on POTD. Hugs Eve
