A Poem Taking Flight


It drifted past my window
As I gazed into the night
It sparkled as a diamond -
'Twas a poem taking flight

It fluttered in the darkness
And I saw it floating by
With wings of brightest silver
How it moved across the sky

I thought upon the message
That this poem might impart
Of love, of hope, of freedom –
Words to hold within my heart

Such poems are eternal
That shall move the soul to love -
A gentle voice so tender
That falls from heaven above

    So the poem has taken flight after all its writhing and wriggling! It is soaring high into the sky with the messages of love, hope and freedom...! Let it keep flying and conquer greater realms! ! Enjoyed much! ! (Report) Reply

    As usual here your poem is uploaded here into the mind with a reverberating experience.
    The poem is a ready reckoner of yet another Valerie presence over PH. (Report) Reply

    Wow, Val, this is often just how I feel about poetry.
    It flies by and it is for us to pluck it from the morning glory.
    I really recommend the essay, the poet from RW Emerson who expresses a simmilar idea in a wonderful way.
    He says that most poems have written in the universe and as soon we manage to connect without ego to this great universe, the genius stored in it will be able to flow through our minds.
    This poem is another great work of you. A super ten. (Report) Reply

    What better can there be?
    Makes you feel totally free!
    As always, reading you, a totally uplifting feeling of peace, joy and loveliness.
    Thank you (Report) Reply
