I remembered the angels there.
they would cascade down the cliff face
gracefully plummeting into
the northern lights.
snowflakes maybe?
Or feathers floating
and falling gently
into the gravitational embrace
of what lays beyond the fog.
the places hidden from
seeking eyes,
secret valleys where
those like me, without wings
are never allowed to see
and not to be let down easy.
no elegant plight in trodden ground
and passing the same vantage point
lost in timeless circles.
always left to admiring
the climb to the top,
and how exhilirating it must feel
to let the science of freedom
define your journey
No matter how far down
youre destined to travel.

instead of leaving footprints
overlapping over the same patch
of middle ground.

"to let the science of freedom

No matter how far down
youre destined to travel.

instead of leaving footprints
overlapping over the same patch
of middle ground."

Beauty, brains, & talent too...

my-oh-my

such a feast.

Enjoyed this much, lady dawn.
