.hang Gliding Poem by C R Clark

.hang Gliding

Rating: 3.4

To plunge from high on summit’s peak
And ride the current, swift
Survey the earth in sweeping view
As, with the morning clouds, I drift

To look the eagle in the eye
While soaring heaven’s blue
And float on silent wafts of air
Blind to common hullabaloo

It would be grand to hang below
The glider as I tour the sky
And so I would if I just could
Acquire sufficient nerve to try

I love this one Richard and the last line is great. I'm afraid to say I'm scared of heights too. Well done, best wishes, Andrew

A perfect fact given by this imagery... A perfect place to hang over A perfect hieght to overview Somewhere over the Tumult of life. Being away...riding the current... Dear Poet... You have shown us how to take a while to sway.
