Howard Simon

In The Company Of Eagles

Mountains for my mansion
The forest for my pantry
The clouds for my carpet
The sky for my curtains
The sun for my candle
The wind for my chariot
In the company of eagles

Flying above fear
Floating above failures
Winging above worries
Gliding above gravity
Living above limits
Soaring to success
Come fly with me

    You certainly are an inspirational poet, I liked the two previous to this one also, each of them teaching us a little......
    you cram so much into so few words
    there's never a moment to be bored
    we can only to stop and read again
    a verse well written, each line well said ;)

    The authenticity of your writing is captivating...count me in, I'll fly with you! The last stanza contracts beautifully with eagles company. Another wonderful piece of work and a 10 (voting does not register but you got my vote)

    I like how you used images of the natural world of an eagle to express your wish for freedom and triumph.
