red tailed hawk flying over black cable

Feet clenched, holding on tightly, balancing through the shifts in the wind, the bird hangs onto the wire. This is not a place to stay, only a quick vantage point to scout for food, to be safe above the commotion, but it is not a safe place.

Little woman, hiding in the shadows, never reaching the full light of day, holding on tightly, balancing thoughts that sway her emotions, trying to stay away from the commotion, but this is not a safe place.

Wings are folded that were meant for flying. Tattered by winds and rain, many storms this bird flew through, now resting on the wire, not a true rest, too much balancing and gripping and searching.

Little woman, ravaged by time and circumstances, soul was meant for soaring, but too much rain and wind, too many storms she has passed through, now resting in the shadows, not a true rest, too much balancing and gripping and searching.

Infused by an impulse of inspiration, the bird spreads its wings and lifts off of the wire and fly’s upward until it reaches a warm current and gently is carried through the air above the meadow, filled with wildflowers and warm sunlight. She lands among her kin, home at last.

Little woman is stirred by an impulse of inspiration and steps out of the shadows, heart pounding she steps into the light and is swept away into the warm breeze, fragrance of flowers, she closes her eyes and dances through the meadow, spinning round and around and when she stops she sees her kin walking towards her, home at last.

  1. Resting Testing my new leg ankle broken Nov. Have & looking forward to start my new week – starts when softly slowly message from someone articulating my thought. Slowing is the healing due to age. Power from the message from admiration for the world from S.H.F. enables me .Ty4sharing
