“I Dream of Flying”

I’m not sure why I wrote this, except that I was driving along the other day with my car windows open and the wind in my hair and got inspired. Go figure!!!

I’ll be printing it in our monthly SCA Newsletter, The Equinox, but also thought I’d share it here.


I Dream of Flying

I dream of flying; sailing swift and high
Above the patchwork world, where eagles soar
And clouds are strung like ghosts across the sky,
And raindrops fall to kiss a foreign shore.

Where worlds may vanish, and where dreams may ride
On windborne horses formed of brume and mist,
Below a vault where Summer’s children glide
And mountaintops by Winter’s breath are kissed.

On wings of faultless imagery I sail,
And ride the fearless lightning up and down,
Upon the shoulders of a southern gale
To arch beneath the jeweled Northern Crown.

With feathered fantasies, I windward steer,
Where earthbound chains will not permit I roam,
And dream of flying, far from grief and fear
Until at last I must be heading home.

[20 September A.S. LIII, 2018]
