Oh To Fly, Oh To Fly

Rating: 5.0
Perched on the cliff face
Looking at a brave, new world
I cry from the wilderness, hear it today
Hear it for a thousand years

The earth shakes and i catapult
onto a warming updraft
Circling, wheeling among the Winds of destiny
Beneathe, all the planet trembles at her footsteps

While thunderclouds colour the sky my claws flex
I swoop, i dive, the wind caresses my wings
The clouds part and for one second,
There a playmate, together we merrily chase the wind

Ah, but I’ve been there so I knew that you were watching an eagle and, sure enough, another came out to play. I like the way you said it. Adeline
