Pilot envy

Envy a pilot escape gravity's clutches for oceans of air. Manufactured bird raucous call and rigid wing, momentary flight. A featherless dance in the shadow of a cloud, elusive freedom!

Some would argue that this is a senryu, but the line between the haiku and senryu are blurred by the contemporary haiku movement. That aside, I think this is a great piece. At first I thought I liked only the 3rd tier, but after further reading, I'm enjoying the whole thing.

I agree with Rick, the imagery is excellent. Who knew piloting a plane could be so freeing? You said so much using a fairly limiting form, nicely done!
