Long Flight Home

Jonathon Livingston Seagull
Gracefully takes flight
Soaring against the backdrop
Of a jewel glittered night.

My heart sings with joy
As you sail through the sky
Your body rolls from side to side
As you wave goodbye.

Wings spread wide and open
I watch you flying free
Beyond the bright horizon
Towards a distant sea.

Majestic is your prescence
Like a king upon his throne.
I wish you well on your journey
As you begin the long flight home.

one night at the airport...Childhood Memories...your countenance...eight short weeks...My One and Only...Music to my Ears...hoarse whispers...What will it be?...just watching tv...break my heart...serving wench...take a guess...sink or swim
...stolen hours...the mistress...Perfection...a little girl...Mr. Jones...life is like...insomnia...devotion...too soon...07-20-69
...craving...Master...apart...plain...hush...then...shameless self promotion

So gorgeous. The simplicity of a bird in flight, caught against the sky contrasts with our own busy lives. I loved this!

I particularly like
"Your body rolls from side to side
As you wave goodbye."
I can just see the beautiful gliding flight when I read your poem - lovely.
