Up and Away

MAGPIE 75

I'm high
Higher than a kite
Trying
Wobbling
Balancing
But
Knowing
That with patience
And
Determination
As I reach for
And 
Touch 
The stars
The impossible
Is mine

  7. The interesting thing, Bee, is that I have commented before on this poem. I am sure of it. But now I see that there is not comment here.

    I will try this again.

    I do really like your take on this Magpie.

  8. Thank you to all for coming and reading. I don't know why but ever since I saw this picture I've been humming "Umbrellas of Cherbourg" which of course has nothing to do with the Mag but is everything French!

  12. There are times when I wake up in the morning and feel this sense of exhileration as completely as it is shown here. The knack is to hold on to that feeling.
