Learning to Fly
Age Group: Adult
Grey, leaden clouds scud across the sky
driven by gale force gusts of wind.
As in the harbour sail boats rest with sails furled
waiting for calmer days to come.
As I stand there taking in the view white flashes catch my eye,
Gulls sailing the currents in the air.
Soaring effortlessly back and forth masters of the sky.
All the while uttering a strident raucous cry
challenging the firmament to a duel.
Time after time, they launch themselves into the blast
in for the want of a better term I can only call joy.
Standing there lost in this display
my thoughts turn inward.
Can I be like them.
Can I learn to fly in the face of life's storms.
Them my heart melts and I feel Her beside me.
I take her hand and launch myself
into the storms that life brings, not with a grudge
but with a scream of joy that matches those
that fill the grey leaden sky.
