Morning flight



In the early morning

Doves fly on silver wings

Into the eastern sky.

I, earthbound hang on the stone sill

Beneath the limpid blue

And wonder if doves too long to find

The magical place of golden light

That lies beyond the commonplace

Where it is always morning.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
