You cruise on design modelled after my flight
Aerodynamic, beats walking through traffic
My wing spans effortlessly
I look down at arterials carved through my forest(ry)
Arteries, feathers, blood, beak, and bone
A sacrificial offering
For your carbon fuelled emitting
For me and my kind
Forcing me to concede
Mind if we stand still?
There’s a sign
Concrete ideas in place of green trees
Before risking the wrath of the no park(ing) inspector
My heart and your pistons
A primal reaction
We take flight
What a feeling!
Poem inspired by the image posted by my friend and fellow blogger K E Garland. Kathy regularly posts inspiring quotes (kwotes), images, ideas and thought-provoking, consciousness-raising articles. Thanks for the inspiration Kathy, particularly when I was so close to posting two back to back posts from my travel through the tumbleweed series, if I didn’t get new inspiration! Kathy and I have previously collaborated on a post with tips on maintaining goals and new year resolutions.
