Descent to Earth
Descent to Earth I am Impossibly soft and delicate, as I flutter and float into An all too brief life of my own Time is suspended for just a moment As I enjoy my freedom From the bird, and the wing I am Held gently in the air, As the world, my only world, stands still For an eternity Then I am taken By the soft currents of the breeze My delicate passage, as I fall And flutter to the surface Of the Earth And I settle And I rest
This absolutely stunning poem was sent in by Jane to include on the blog. I am bowled over by the gentleness that Jane has captured and the evocative words. When I read it I could literally see the feather floating down before me. This ties in with this week’s creative writing theme which will be all about air and movement…..watch this space! I hope you like the photo’s that accompany the poem, they are of a beautiful barn owl I was lucky enough to meet.
What a beautiful and gentle way to start the week.
With best wishes,
