Feet planted pure
in their nakedness
alone
Stand with me here
upon this world of stone

Atlantic crashing
madly rehashing
speaking to me in waves below
OH!

so close to the edge . . .

Float with me
within this realm
weightlessly leaving
thrice weaving

send me home to the place of my birth

Wild wind whispering
soul singing
it is time
to decide

  to fly . . .

Sky above me
sea below
Four corners pulling
me to go

Echoes in sleep
sweet slumber
deep
Turn and awake
last chance
to glance
at this place

I leap

You evoked immense forces here .... ready to leap, the soul's longing is exquisitely expressed.
I miss your picture, but I carry your smile in my heart ...
Wonderful write!
Love, Margherita

Sue, I pray that you will soon be able to fly as free as a bird and as happy and carefree as an Angel.  

Hugs,
Ethel

Bare feet on plummets edge
Hair whipped by ocean spray
Sparkled eyes aswirl in doubt
Spirit weighs the corporal plunge

Such power and emotion in this piece. Loved the lyical flow of it. I can just feel my soul sway and drift among the swirling sea and the lifting sky. in short, just plain WONDERFUL

liked this piece very much,
with feet on the ground
you have sailed the seas
flying thru your thought's
and
" I leap "

bump bump bump

A smile a day keeps the world in smile's.
Bernie Slicker
