In the Flutter of a Wing

It's in the dew of early morn
It's in the nectar of a flower
It's dancing in the lilt of laughter
And hanging gently from the bower

It's in the flutter of a wing
And floating on a summer cloud
Chanting songs in rain's soft putters
Leaves of oak in reverence bowed

It's whispered in a baby's breath
And glowing from a child's smile
An entity invisible
Yet there before me all the while

I feel it with me in the springtime
In the forest's every nook
It's swirling in the sparkling water
Playfully in babbling brook

It's in the height of tender kiss
It's perched in winter's holly tree
And woven in and out among
Melodic strains of poetry

I see it in an ocean wave
And in a stallion's graceful stance
On rippled pond, in nighttime sky
And in a peacock's stately prance

I would not dare to live without it
I take it with me everywhere
It fills my heart with joy unequalled
An ecstacy beyond compare

It's in my heart, it's in my mind
It's blowing on the willow leaf
It is my love of life I speak of
And my spirit's true belief

It's in the flutter of a wing
It's in the early morning dew
Right beside my love of life
It is the love I have for you

Elizabeth Santos

And this poem could lift the darkness right out of any demon.

Wow - gracefully beautiful, Liz. Wow.
Love the sentences - and the title is a true breath of poetry.

Elizabeth,
Two exquisites for this one.
The title is beautiful but
after I read it I thought
more." The wings of essence "
