Longing

Sycamore

A flock of crows —
Soaring black screams
Cedar waxwings —
Delicate fluttering, twittering —
Red-tailed hawk —
Confident glide, piercing call
Twin engine plane —
Straight. Noisy.
Bright marked butterfly —
Silent, erratic
Bumblebees, flickers and fireflies
Dragons, angels and fairies —

Things that fly —
Defy my reality
Escape the ground
That binds me

I watch for wings
So that I might believe
More than I have known.

I dream of brightly colored
Magical birds
That land on my
Outstretched hands...

~Anne Bach
